PHC Addresses Danger Of Drugs In Rockaway
Dr. Peter A. Guiney, D.O. Director, Family Practice Residency Program at Peninsula Hospital Center speaks at a recent 100 Precinct Community Council meeting about drug abuse, the dangers of prescription drugs and the crime that results when addicts have to finance their habit. Guiney said recent outreach efforts were prompted by recent drug overdoses in Broad Channel and Breezy Point. Among the advice Guiney shared was that medicine cabinets need annual checkups for expired medication and restocking. He also warned against the dangers of combining and/or sharing medications or illegal drugs.
