The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 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 provides an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. The Safe Streets Coalition of Wichita will be at two Wichita locations (The Sedgwick County Zoo & Dillons on Harry and Webb) providing additional information on this epidemic to those who are dropping off their prescription drugs.
