What is Walmart doing to fight the nation’s opioid issue?

With more than 2 million people in the U.S. suffering from opioid addiction, we’re taking action to help communities. This includes:

  • Limiting certain non-chronic prescriptions to a 7-day supply, in line with CDC guidelines
  • Helping people responsibly dispose of unused drugs
  • Funding prevention education in schools
  • Stocking overdose medication and dispensing upon request, as allowed by state law
  • Supporting law enforcement and relevant legislation
