National Prescription Take Back Day is Saturday, October 29

Oct 27, 2022 / Uncategorized

Do you have unused prescription drugs at home in your medicine cabinet? The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) created National Prescription Drug Take Back Day to provide a safe and convenient way of disposing of unneeded prescription drugs. DEA’s Take Back Day is an important way to reduce the potential for medication abuse, and help make our communities safer.

Prescription medications can be just as dangerous at street drugs when used improperly. According to the DEA, the majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends – often from the home medicine cabinet. Since unused prescriptions drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and illegally sold (or if flushed down the toilet contaminate water supplies), the best way to dispose of unused prescription drugs are programs like the DEA’S Take Back Day.

The next Take Back Day is on October 29th, it’s a great opportunity to keep unused prescription drugs out of the wrong hands. Thousands of people all across the United States will be participating and cleaning out their medicine cabinets safely and anonymously. You can too!
