National Drug Take Back Day

MTSU offers prescription drug take-back event April 24

It is part of the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. This weekend more than 5,600 collection sites manned by nearly 4,500 partner law enforcement agencies will be open 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. local time.

This permanent prescription drop box is a safe, simple, secure and environmentally-friendly way to help law enforcement agencies and communities collect unwanted or expired household medications, including prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs. You will not be required to give your name or sign any forms.

This service is completely anonymous, and prescriptions can be dropped off with no questions asked. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

"Participating in these take-back events is one simple step that we can take to protect our loved ones and respond to the opioid crisis in our communities", the Coalition's press release stated. "Rates of prescription drug abuse in the USA are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs".

"Getting prescription drugs out of people's homes keeps kids and other people from getting their hands on them", Sheriff Gene Fischer said.

Volunteers will not accept syringes, needles, liquids or inhalers. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines - flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash - pose potential safety and health hazards.
