The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday and addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue.
According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 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. The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
Local Drop Off Locations include Barrington Police Department, Lake Zurich Police Department, and Lake Zurich Walmart Parking Lot Saturday, October 24, 2020 10am-2pm
