National Drug Take Back

October 23, 2021 @ 4:00 am 8:00 am

National Drug Take Back

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million people misused prescription stimulants, and 5.9 million people misused prescription tranquilizers or sedatives in 2019. The survey also showed that a majority of misused 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.

Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the DEA will be sponsoring three locations for citizens to anonymously drop of expired, unwanted, unused prescription drugs.

Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office West Sub-Station, 320 Joe Martinez Blvd.
Pueblo Rural Fire Station, 29912 U.S. Highway 50 E (between Wago Drive and 30th Lane)
Valley Health Mart Pharmacy, 4493 Bent Brothers Blvd. Colorado City
