A client of mine who has some, ah, let's call it "moderate" hoarding issues recently made it a goal of hers to clear out her kitchen enough that she could set up the table and chairs that she has. I am helping her with this, and we began by tackling a corner where she had numerous plastic and paper shopping bags stacked about knee high. In many of these bags were old empty prescription bottles she hadn't wanted to throw out due to her name and address being on the labels. In all of the other bags were FULL prescription bottles of medication she hadn't taken, including some serious pain killers. Apparently her doc has continued prescribing her 3xday when she only takes them as needed (maybe one a day a few days a week). She had these from the past 4-5 years. The mind boggles to think of what the street value of these things would be.
We just returned them to the pharmacy for proper disposal.
