The National Take Back Initiative (NTBI) will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Olivette City Center on October 24, 2020.
The next National Take Back Day will be October 24, 2020. This event is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs at locations in communities throughout the country. Properly disposing of the drugs helps cut down on opioid abuse and keeps chemicals out of our water supply.
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 study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
