The DEA National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, October 26, 2019. Most youth who abuse medicine say they get it from friends or family medicine cabinets. You are the first line of defense against medicine abuse! By safely disposing of your unused medications, you can help prevent the misuse of drugs, addiction, and even overdoses and death.
Local residents can drop off their unused and expired prescription drugs at the main entrance of St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea hospital from 10am to 2pm on this day.
Accepted medications for disposal:
- Prescription medications in tablet form
- Controlled substances in tablet form
- Over-the-counter medications
