The National Prescription Drug Take-Back raises awareness for public safety and helps address public health issues. Studies show that prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Many individuals do not realize that medicines that are stored in home cabinets after a certain period of time are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. In addition, people do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both posing potential safety and health hazards. This event aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of these prescription drugs.
