The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.2 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.
WHAT IS ACCEPTED:
ANY PILL FORM MEDICATION including prescription and over the counter
WHAT WE CANNOT ACCEPT:
Liquids, Needles, Pressurized containers (inhalers)
This is entirely anonymous the medications are brought in and dropped in a box and you are free to walk away. We do not collect any information- the pills are disposed of in an incinerator, so no need to deidentify if you do not wish to take that time.
THANK YOU to the Grand Island Police Department, the Hall County Sherriff’s Department, the Central Nebraska Council on Alcoholism and Addictions, and Super Saver for partnering to make this event happen!
