CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Multiple Lowcountry agencies are participating in National Drug Takeback Day on Saturday, October 23.

The event gives people an opportunity to safely dispose of prescription medications that are expired or no longer needed.

The 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that “9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million people misused prescription stimulants, and 5.9 million people misused prescription tranquilizers or sedatives in 2019.” Most of the drugs, according to the survey, were taken from the medicine cabinets of family and friends.
