The National Prescription Drug Take-Back

raises awareness for public safety and helps

address public health issues. Studies show that

prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at

alarming rates, as are the number of accidental

poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.

Many individuals do not realize that medicines

that are stored in home cabinets after a certain

period of time are highly susceptible to diversion,

misuse and abuse. In addition, people do not

know how to properly dispose of their unused

medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or

throwing them away – both posing potential safety

and health hazards. This event aims to provide

a safe, convenient, and responsible means of

disposing of these prescription drugs.
