National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Saturday | October 28, 2017 | 10 AM - 2 PM

In conjunction with National Drug Take-Back Day, Lee's Summit CARES and the Lee's Summit Police Department have partnered to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means to dispose of unused prescription and over-the-counter medications. Persons can turn in unwanted and expired medications at one of the several drop off locations throughout Lee's Summit. Medications can be accepted in the original bottles, no need to remove labels. Needles and inhalers are NOT accepted. At each of these locations representatives from the Lee’s Summit Police Department will be on hand to accept the medications and answer questions.

Why Do We Care?

  • 2,500 teens begin abusing prescription drugs each day
  • Next to marijuana, prescription drugs are the most common drugs used by teens to get high
  • More than 70% of people abusing prescription pain relievers got them through friends or relatives, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet
