The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused 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.

Removing unwanted or expired medications from the medicine cabinet is an easy and concrete step that every American can take to make a difference as we battle back against the opioid crisis.

DEA has posted a new partnership toolkit of various promotional materials for the upcoming April 28th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on DEA Community Outreach would appreciate any efforts you can make to share the contents of this toolkit with members of your organization and any contacts you have around the country — directly and through social media. Any help you can provide will significantly increase awareness in cities and towns across the country. This force-multiplier effect will go a long way to helping get more folks to participate in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
