The Next DEA Drug Take Back Day Is October 28

September 12, 2023

Twice a year the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) hosts a drug take back day to build awareness about properly disposing unused or outdated prescriptions. The event encourages the public to remove unneeded medications from their homes as a measure of preventing medication misuse and opioid addiction from ever starting.
While preventing unused medications from getting into the hands of those who might misuse them, it is important to remember that unwanted prescription medications should be disposed of appropriately.
For safe disposal of controlled substances, let patients know about the DEA’s next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 28. For year-round disposal of controlled substances, locate a convenient collection site.
Unless you’re an authorized collector, your team should not accept medications from patients.
