The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. 
According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused 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 events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and
overdose deaths.
