National Prescription Drug Take Back Day This Saturday, October 26
The next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.
The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
The DEA’s Take Back Day provides an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
