Drug take back scheduled for April 28

The main products seized by authorities were anabolic steroids sedatives and erectile dysfunction medicines

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue, said a spokesman.

Local authorities and advocacy groups will host a prescription drug take-back event in late April to help area residents safely dispose of their unused drugs. "Rates of prescription drug abuse in the US are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs". Last year, Cook County's Prescription Drug Take Back events produced 125 pounds of medication. Community members are encouraged to bring in any unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs for this free, anonymous service.

Last fall Americans turned in 456 tons (912,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and nearly 4,300 of its state and local law enforcement partners.

The 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs.
