Northwestern Medicine, Lurie Children’s Hospital and the Drug Enforcement Administration team up for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Northwestern Medicine

Every day, nearly 100 Americans die after overdosing on opioids, including prescription pain medications. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Approximately 16.7 million people used prescription drugs for a nonmedical purpose in the past year. Of the nonmedical users of prescription drugs, nearly 70% obtained their pills from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet. Appropriate disposal of unused medications is a critical component of curbing the opioid crisis.
