The DEA National Prescription Medication Take Back Day is only 30 days away!
The Drug Enforcement Administration hosts National Take Back Day twice a year, once in April and once in October, to provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. According to the DEA, “9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million people misused prescription stimulants, and 5.9 million people misused prescription tranquilizers or sedatives in 2019.”
During this time, you are able to safely dispose expired, unwanted, and unused prescription medication. NO QUESTIONS ASKED!
