National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

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 by providing a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs.

The total collected by county for this year’s first take back day is:

Collier 530 lbs.; Hendry 77 lbs.; Hillsborough 733.93 lbs.; Lee 32 lbs.; Pasco 686.8 lbs.; Pinellas 1,093 lbs.; Polk 1,856 lbs.; Sarasota 83 lbs.
