DEA Drug Take-Back is Saturday, Sept. 27

IMG_3047

Keeping prescription drugs out of the wrong hands is one of the goals of this Saturday’s DEA Drug Take-Back.

Last year in California, more than one billion hydrocodone pain pills were dispensed – that’s enough for a month’s supply for every California adult. Many of those narcotics are no longer needed and may be stored in easily accessible medicine cabinets where visitors and teens can easily obtain them to get high.

The DEA’s twice-yearly Drug Take-Back is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., this Saturday, September 27, 2014. The event allows you to safely dispose of those pain pills and other unused, unwanted and expired prescription drugs at a location near you.

During the last Drug TakeBack event in April, the three DEA field divisions in California collected 78,495 pounds of prescription drugs.

    • Hi Glenn, thank you for the feedback. The DEA is no longer coordinating the TakeBack locations. We have updated the page, and are now referring people to their county office.
