DoseofRealityCampaign

A Message from HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital: The heroin epidemic is a big issue in our county, and the Healthy Sheboygan County 2020 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Committee is attempting to draw awareness to this issue.  As part of this initiative we are promoting the “Dose of Reality” campaign which is a very visible and coordinated promotional effort taking place throughout the state to increase the awareness of and solutions to the current health crisis of opiate addiction and overdose.

The Oostburg School District would like to share resources from this committee, including reminders of the dangers of prescription painkiller abuse and the locations of permanent drug disposal sites in Sheboygan county. Please see the attached flyer for more information about disposing expired, unused, or unwanted medications.
