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

Click on your county to find the RX Drop Box location nearest you. The official take back day is April 28, 2018 from 10AM to 2PM, but most of locations are open year round.
