Mark your calendar and clean out your medicine cabinets: Saturday, April 24, 2021 is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. This is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.
The misuse of prescription drugs is a huge problem in this country, and it affects millions of people. According to the 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the majority of misused prescription drugs were obtained from family or friends.
By properly disposing of your old medications, you can help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
Don’t let your unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands.
