Saturday is National Prescription Drug Takeback Day


Here’s a great step toward kicking the vaping habit --- drop off your device this Saturday, Oct. 26, during National Prescription Drug Takeback Day. This year the DEA added vaping devices to the list of accepted items. Be sure to remove and recycle any lithium ion batteries.

Of course Saturday is also the day to drop off any unused or expired Rx as well. Learn more about accepted items and find an Rx collection site near you.

Agencies also reported a slight uptick in suspected overdoses, with continued modest declines in Naloxone administrations.

Agencies utilize ODMAP to better support drug prevention and response by public safety and public health organizations. Minnesota agencies began using ODMAP in February 2019. Learn more. odmap.png
