How can I properly dispose of opioids?

Keeping unused, expired, or unwanted medications like prescription opioids in your home creates a serious safety concern to children, family members, or friends who may be able to access them without a prescription. To protect your loved ones, dispose of unused medications safely. There are many ways to do so.

Disposing of medications at home is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Also, there are local disposal locations and Take Back Day events that offer no-cost disposal of unused medications.
