Over the years, you’ve brought opioids into your home. They helped when you were in pain, and you held onto them just in case. But holding on to opioids puts your family at risk. Safely dispose of opioids and other medications at this year’s DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Find more information and other locations in your area at www.meada.net.

Unused medications sit in your cabinets or drawers, putting your loved ones at risk. Dispose of them safely at this year’s DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Find more information and other locations in your area at www.meada.net.
