The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused 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.
The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
Stop by Dunwoody Police Department on October 24, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to drop off expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs or over-the-counter medication. We cannot accept needles/sharps, syringes with needles, thermometers, IV bags, bloody or infectious waste, personal care products, empty containers, inhalers, medical equipment and hydrogen peroxide.
Disposing of all expired, unused, and unwanted medications is an important way to keep your family safe.
