State and government leaders are asking the public to mitigate drug addiction and overdose deaths.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day allows individuals to safely dispose of unneeded and expired prescription drugs.

A national survey conducted in 2019 found that 9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million misused prescription stimulants, and 5.9 misused prescription tranquilizers.

"Take Back Day" is taking place Saturday, April 24 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. A list of locations in the Salt Lake area can be found below, or click here to find a collection site near you.
