<h1>National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday!</h1>

More than four in 10 teens who have misused or abused a prescription drug obtained it from their parent’s medicine cabinet. This weekend, you have an opportunity to keep your kids safe and do your part to curb the prescription drug abuse epidemic.  

Join us and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) this Saturday, April 26th for the DEA’s eighth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, an opportunity for people all over the country to safely and properly dispose of their prescription drugs. Through previous DEA Take-Back Day events, over 3.4 million pounds of medication have been removed from circulation and kept out of kids’ hands.

With thousands of disposal locations set up around the country, dropping off your pills is easy and could save lives. Join us and the DEA this Saturday.
