DEA National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

October 26 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

drug+take+back+1280

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 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. That’s why the DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths as well as keeping our environment medical pollution free.

 

This year’s Take Back Day event will be from 10:00am to 2:00pm at any of our 11 valley-wide locations. CARE Coalition will be at Enterprise Area Command, Spring Valley Area Command, and Southeast Area Command. Please bring by your unneeded prescription or over-the-counter medications and pet meds for safe disposal, no questions asked. For the safety of our staff though, we cannot accept any sharps, aerosols, or liquids.
