NMDOH News:

The New Mexico Department of Health has issued details about the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, which is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28.

The DEA’s annual Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
