It has happened occasionally in my career that I have wound up holding drugs for a client. Sometimes, a client leaves them locked up in a file cabinet for safekeeping. More often, I have persuaded clients to turn over a "suicide stash," which my pharmacist disposes of for me. But never before have I confiscated meds prescribed to a person who the MD knew abused the drug, overdosed on it twice, and had even been in detox for it. Couldn't believe it.
