On Saturday, April 28, from 10 am to 2 pm, dozens of locations throughout the East Bay will be accepting and properly disposing of unused prescription drugs, including controlled substances. Proper disposal of unused prescription drugs helps prevent diversion and misuse associated with these medications. This one-day event provides patients with free, anonymous collection of unwanted and expired medicines and also aims to educate the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications. Physicians can take action by encouraging their patients to participate in Take Back Day. To find a collection site near your practice, go to https://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/Other resources are available on ACCMA’s safe prescribing webpage at http://www.accma.org/community-health/safe-prescribing.
