U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration

WASHINGTON, D.C. (RPRN) 10/26/13 — DEA HOLDS NATIONWIDE PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE- BACK EVENT TODAY

 

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and more than 4,000 of its national, tribal, and community partners will hold a seventh National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at over 5,500 sites across America on Saturday the 26th. Collection sites are open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

 The public can find a nearby collection site by visiting www.dea.gov, clicking on the “Got Drugs?” icon, and following the links to a database where they enter their zip code. Or they can call 1-800-882-9539.

 

Americans participating in DEA’s six previous Take-Back Days turned in nearly 2.8 million pounds—almost 1,409 tons—of prescription drugs.

These Take Back Days give the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.
