Saturday, April 27 is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. It's a chance for residents across the country and right here in Illinois to help address the opioid epidemic.
RALI Illinois is raising awareness of the opportunity for residents to bring their unused prescription medicines to a collection site near them. Often people who become addicted to opioids started by misusing prescription medicines. Removing unused or expired medications from the home can help prevent this.
Information about take back locations near you is located under the Safe Disposal section of our website or at takebackday.dea.gov.
