Spread the Word about Proper Disposal of Prescription Drugs

SKCDS is asking all dentists to promote the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day in an effort to decrease the prevalence of opioid misuse and overdose.  Dentists can continue to lead the way in fighting the opioid epidemic by directing patients to convenient drop-boxes to dispose of unused medication.

October 26, 10am-2pm is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.  This special event occurs in April and October, with the DEA adding temporary sites across America to collect and destroy unused medication.  A collection site locator is available HERE.

 Dentists can help by sharing National Prescription Drug Take Back Day information with all of their patients.  A DEA Partnership Toolbox, also at www.takebackday.dea.gov provides posters, patient handouts and materials for social media that you can use this week.
