Prescription Drug Take-Back Events

Because medicines are commonly found in family medicine cabinets, on top of dressers, in kitchen cabinets, and in other accessible locations, it is important to take stock of the drugs in your home. If you have unwanted or expired prescriptions, you must dispose of them in order to keep your child safe.

You can host a prescription drug take back event in your community and find out more about The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

Find out more about disposing of unused medicine from the Medicine Abuse Project and National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from the DEA Web site.
