Drug Take Back Day is April 22nd, Find a Collection Sight Near You


KANSAS – Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That’s dangerous and often tragic. That’s why it was great to see thousands of folks from across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in – safely and anonymously – a record amount of prescription drugs.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day reflects DEA’s commitment to Americans’ safety and health, encouraging the public to remove unneeded medications from their homes as a measure of preventing medication misuse and opioid addiction from ever starting.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is April 22, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can find a collection site near you at or by calling 1-800-882-9539.
