The LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back™​ program helps to educate Americans on the dangers of leaving prescription drugs unattended in the home. From diminishing the risk of drug abuse to helping protect the environment, disposing of your medications properly makes your community a healthier, safer place.

In the US alone, 18 million people over the age of 12 have misused medication at least once in the past year. Patients of unused medications today take many forms, from flushing down the toilet or pouring in the drain, to throwing them in the garbage, or worse. More often than not, the end result is damage to our environment, drug diversion, or the drug being abused by others.

To assist in reducing these issues and bringing awareness to the massive opioid crisis that is plaguing many families, LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back™​ program provides consumers with a safe option to responsibly dispose of unused or outdated medications in secure kiosks located across the US.

I went to Safeway in Novato, California, and walked to the pharmacy area where I found LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back™​ green kiosk. After reading the simple guidelines, I was glad to know that they accepted pet medications as well since I brought that along with another expired prescription. I simply opened the drawer and dropped the pill bottle.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar on April 22, 2023, as National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. This event is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs at locations in communities throughout the country.
