National Take Back 2018

**Please Share This Has Great Potential to Save a Life**

This Saturday, April 28th, is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from 10 am to 2 pm. Prescription drugs have been finding their ways on the streets and in the pockets of our youth. 

After collecting more than 9 million pounds (4,500 tons) of expired, unused and unwanted prescription medications at 14 previous events over the past 8 years, the Drug Enforcement Administration and its national, tribal, and community partners will hold the 15th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day across the country on Saturday, April 28th. The service is free and anonymous.  Read more.

Please do not leave your unused or needed prescription drugs in your medicine cabinet or anywhere else. If you no longer need the prescription dispose of the drugs. Do NOT flush the drugs, use Controlled Substance Public Disposal Locations that are available year-round OR take participate in National Take Back Day.
