Why is this event important?

Take Back events are aimed at preventing prescription drug abuse, accidental poisonings and overdoses.

  • Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. 
  • One in five teens have abused prescription drugs.
  • One in four adult opioid prescriptions results in addiction
  • Additionally, more than 160 children go to the emergency room daily from accidental overdose.

The DEA also reports that Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards, making events such as this a great opportunity to safely dispose of unused, expired, or unwanted medications.
