The D-E-A Take Back Day is on the way...

This Saturday, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will host it's second National Prescription Drug Take Back Day for 2019. 

The goal is to encourage the proper disposal of expired and unused prescriptions, safely.  

The DEA's National Survey reported more than 9.9 million Americans misused prescriptions in 20-18. 

Round two is scheduled for Saturday, October 26th from 10am to 2pm with many locations set up here in the Upstate and throughout the State.   

Earlier this year, April's Take Back Day recovered more than 468 tons of unused prescriptions.
