Ever wished you could take back something that you said or did? That’s practically a daily thing for me. Unfortunately, life doesn’t work that way, except for maybe one area. You can take back your unused prescription drugs – which may help protect the lives of your family and friends. According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.2 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. That’s why the DEA introduced National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
Find out how you can take back unused prescription drugs at this DEA website.
If you can’t take your drugs in, you can mix them with something like kitty litter and seal them in a plastic bag, and then dispose of them in the trash.
