National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will happen on April 24. If you happen to have an old prescription in your home that you no longer use, this is the perfect time for you to dispose of them safely. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, in 2019, 9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million people misused prescription stimulants and 5.9 million people misused prescription tranquilizers.

Oftentimes, these misused prescriptions were obtained out of a medicine cabinet of a family member or friend. National Prescription Drug Take Back Day provides a safe way to dispose of prescription drugs and could help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
