Help ensure that unused, unwanted and expired medications sitting in your home medicine cabinet (or other place) don’t get taken and misused by a curious teen or drug-seeking adult. Gather them up and drop them off during the DEA’s National Rx Take Back Day on 4/28 between 10-2pm (at most locations across the country). While you are there, check to see where you can drop off medications as you need to throughout the year.
