New Over-The-Counter Medicines Use Support Group Now Available in Medway



A new Peer Support Group is now available to provide help for people with Over The Counter (OTC) Medicine misuse.

Over the counter (OTC) medication are the products available without a prescription at a pharmacy or supermarket.

These medicines are normally safe if used at recommended doses. But like illegal and prescription drugs, they can also be misused. Although less potent than other substances, OTC drugs still pose a risk for developing a dependency.

Are you worried about your own use of over the counter medicine from the pharmacy?

Are you concerned about the use of over the counter medicine by someone you know, or care about?

Would you like support from people in a similar situation with whom you could listen and share with?

Recently launched, a support group for OTC medicine use is being held to provide help and support for people who have a concern about their over the counter medicine use, or for people they know about.

Overcoming OTC dependency can be challenging, but it is far from impossible.

The Support Group is being held at 83 High Street, Chatham and is available every Monday at 1.30pm.

If you would like to know more about the Support Group, or are nervous about attending, you can contact the support group through their Facebook page (@medwayOTCPeerSupportGroup). You can also contact the group by email at
