DEA National Drug Take Back Day Spring 2021

April 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT

| Free

Drop off your prescription drugs for safe disposal at a participating police station near you. 

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

Can’t make it April 24th? Find a DuPage County police station collecting medicine year-round through the RX Box program.
