DEA Chicago Thanks Our Take-Back Partners
CHICAGO - Were you a participant? If so, the Drug Enforcement Administration and its national, tribal, and community partners give a special “THANK YOU” to all who participated in the 15th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
“Take Back Day helps to keep drugs out of the hands of abusers and potentially saves lives by removing unused painkillers and controlled drugs from homes,” said DEA Acting Administrator Robert W. Patterson. Each participant contributed to helping address the opioid crisis in America. While the totals for this year’s Take-Back are being calculated, we want to say, “Thank you!” Check back soon for the Chicago and national totals!
