National Prescription Drug Take Back Day: October 26, 2019

Component ID: #ti1361356105

From the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) website:

“The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6 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 events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.”

Note: DEA's 18th National Take Back Day is Saturday, October 26, 2019, at 10 a.m. Need to dispose of prescription drugs before the next Take Back Day? Click here to locate a year-round, authorized collector in your area.
