Partnership for Drug-Free Kids- ONDCP Twitter Town Hall- newsroom blog post image

Partnership research shows that 1 in 4 teens has misused or abused a prescription drug in their lifetime. And due to the increase in prescription drug abuse, drug overdoses now exceed car crashes as the number one cause of accidental death in the United States. Behind these often-cited statistics are families and communities that have been torn apart by the misuse and abuse of prescription medicine and, increasingly, heroin.

What can you do to help end medicine abuse? Learn how you can safeguard and properly dispose of your unused or expired medication by joining the Office of the National Drug Control Policy, the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and more for a Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Twitter Town Hall Tuesday, April 26th at 2 p.m. EST. Submit questions in advance using #TakeBackDay.
