National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

October 26th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The 18th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will take place this Saturday at locations across the country, including several in the Tri-State area. The twice-yearly, single-day collection provides an opportunity for people to safely dispose of unwanted, unused or expired prescription medications. Hosted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in conjunction with local and state law enforcement agencies, health care providers and community services, volunteers will be at sites to collect unwanted medication from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 26. The goal is to clear the nation’s medicine cabinets of unwanted or expired prescription drugs before they can be misused. In West Virginia, opioid overdoses increased by 19.7% from 2015 to 2016.
