Here's How Many Pain Pills Beverly Hills Pharmacies Receive

BEVERLY HILLS (Patch) — A new report shows billions of painkillers flowed through nearly 83,000 pharmacies across the country, including many in Beverly Hills. A previously unreleased database managed by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration logged where roughly 70 billion pills containing oxycodone and hydrocodone were shipped to, the Washington Post reported Monday.

While the database doesn’t specify what happened after the pharmacies received the shipments, it does illuminate the sheer number of pills that flooded communities. The data includes numbers from 2006 to 2012, the Post reported. Chain and retail pharmacies were included.

The database said 197 pharmacies within five miles of Beverly Hills received 82,863,640 pills from 2006 to 2012.

Here’s what the database found for the individual pharmacies in Beverly Hills:

RITE AID

  • Pills received: 1,452,760
