Google combats opioid epidemic through providing disposal locations on Google Maps

February 25, 2019

Google is launching a new effort in the fight against the nation's opioid crisis.

The tech giant is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Department of Health and Human Services, CVS, Walgreens and state governments to display local drug disposal locations in Google Maps.

By entering searches such as “drug drop off near me” or “medication disposal near me," users will be able to find permanent disposal spots at local pharmacies, hospitals or government buildings to dispatch of unneeded medication. The program will start with 3,500 locations nationwide.
