Drug Take Back Day

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 70 percent of adults who misuse prescription opioids find them in their friends’ and relatives’ medicine cabinets.  You can help fight this epidemic by getting unused prescriptions out of your cabinet and making sure that they are properly disposed of.

As part of the Take Back Initiative, the Drug Enforcement Administration, in conjunction with many local Sheriff’s offices and other community partners, host sites where prescriptions can be dropped off.  Below is a list of the registered sites within the 15th District that participate in the biannual Take Back Days.  You can also visit https://takebackday.dea.gov/#collection-locator to find a site near you.

Ohio is facing an opioid epidemic, and it will take collaboration from officials, and community members to help those affected.  This is a small way to make a big impact.
