Stefanik Encourages Action on National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

October 27, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC– Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), Member of the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force, released the following statement ahead of National Prescription Drug Take Back Day:

“Prescription drug abuse touches our communities, our homes, and our families in ways that have grave effects on everyday people and everyday lives,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “National Prescription Drug Take Back Day represents an important opportunity to raise awareness of prescription drug abuse and to educate our families, friends, and communities about the real impact of this epidemic. I thank the law enforcement agencies, businesses, and organizations that are hosting collection sites, and I urge everyone to take advantage of this critical opportunity to save lives.”

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as part of the Department of Justice effort to provide a safe and convenient means of disposing of unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs. National Drug Take Back Day will take place on Saturday, October 28th, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. This free and anonymous service collected over 450 tons of prescription drugs nationwide last April, and remains an important program in combatting the opioid epidemic plaguing so many communities.
