Safely dispose of unneeded prescription drugs on April 27

Saturday, April 27, is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day and we’re proud to join thousands of sites across the country once again as a take back site. We welcome your patients and all members of our community to stop by between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to drop off their expired, unwanted or unneeded prescription medications for safe disposal.

At last year’s April event, we collected 584 pounds of medication and distributed 126 NARCAN® kits at our sites. NARCAN kits will be distributed again this year.

Why hold Take Back events?

Take Back programs offer a safe way to dispose of unused prescription drugs. Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue and can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose and potential misuse.
