DEA National Take Back of Unneeded Medication April 22nd
Saturday, April 22, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The drug overdose epidemic in the United States is a clear and present public health, public safety, and national security threat. DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day reflects DEA’s commitment to Americans’ safety and health, encouraging the public to remove unneeded medications from their homes as a measure of preventing medication misuse and opioid addiction from ever starting.
Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That’s dangerous and often tragic. Thousands of folks from across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in – safely and anonymously.
Turn in unneeded medication for safe disposal.
Saturday, April 22nd 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
