National Drug Take-Back Day
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.
The DEA and local county Police Department’s across the nation are partnering to host Take Back Day events in our community to provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
