“The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day was a huge success!! 179 lbs. of prescription drugs were collected! 

 

 

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. 

 

The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. 

 

A huge thank you to Tarzana Treatment Center, Kaiser Hospital, Drug Enforcement Administration and everyone that helped out with this event.
