National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10am – 2:00pm. National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused 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.
