The Drug Enforcement Administration National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue.
According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.2 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.
The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
Join the thousands of folks from across the country who clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in - safely and anonymously - a record amount of prescription drugs.
Buckeye Hills Regional Council is a drop off location for prescription drugs on the upcoming Take Back Day on Saturday, April 27th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Keep them safe. Clean them out. Take them back.
