A majority of misused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, often from the home and medicine cabinet.

DEA's National Take Back Day gives Americans the opportunity to clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in — safely and anonymously — unused prescription drugs.

In 2020 alone, Americans returned 985,392 lbs (492.7 tons) of unused prescription drugs at 4,487 Collection Sites across the country.

[2,790 tons of total drugs collected since 2016]<https://lnks.gd/l/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJidWxsZXRpbl9saW5rX2lkIjoxMDMsInVyaSI6ImJwMjpjbGljayIsImJ1bGxldGluX2lkIjoiMjAyMTA0MDUuMzgyMzUwMTEiLCJ1cmwiOiJodHRwczovL3Rha2ViYWNrZGF5LmRlYS5nb3YvIn0.9nlE-z7Urss5oiDN0BaC6jRohDJ4NYWm8nyQrd63phw/s/660096552/br/101463649676-l>
