National Prescription Take Back Day is October 24

Nearly 9.9 million Americans misuse prescription pain relievers, and over half of these drugs are either given, bought, or taken from a friend or relative, according to a 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. October 24 is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, which offers a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused prescription drugs and educates the public about potential medication abuse.
