October 26th is National Take Back Day.
Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That’s dangerous and often tragic. That’s why it was great to see thousands of people across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in their prescription drugs. National Take Back Day allows you to safely and anonymously dispose of your unused, unwanted, and expired medications.
In addition to prescription medications, vaping devices and liquids will be accepted at collection sites as well.
if you or someone you know is struggling with substance use or addiction, please call the National Helpline 24/7: 1-800-662-HELP (4357)
