Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Windsor-Essex County Fentanyl Patch Exchange Program 
The Windsor-Essex County Fentanyl Patch Exchange program asks physicians who prescribe, pharmacists who dispense, and patients who use fentanyl to work together and prevent fentanyl misuse and abuse in the community. 
The ultimate goal is to keep fentanyl patches out of the hands of those who may misuse or abuse them. 
The program provides pharmacies with a fentanyl patient brochure/return sheet. The brochure is intended to supplement pharmacist counselling about the responsible and safe use of fentanyl. The brochure also instructs patients to place their used patches on the brochure (in the empty squares) and return the brochure with the used patches to the pharmacy. The brochure explains to patients that they will get one new patch for each used one they return. 
If you are interested in learning more about, the Fentanyl Patch Exchange program talk with your local pharmacist. If your pharmacy wants to use the Windsor Essex County Fentanyl Patch Exchange resource please contact the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.
