On Saturday, April 28, 2012, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. Collection activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at sites established throughout the country. 

The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction.  These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.

This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. 

    *   The program is anonymous. 

    *   Prescription and over-the-counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted.

    *   Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will NOT be accepted.

    *   Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are NOT a part of this initiative.
