Welcome to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Following CDC’s guidelines of holding no event of more than 50 attendees for the next eight weeks and employing an abundance of caution, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has announced that the 19th National Take Back Day scheduled for April 25 is cancelled.

USDEA will continue to monitor the situation and will determine if the event can be rescheduled for a later date.


  • Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision.
  • The non-medical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America.
  • The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends—and the home medicine cabinet.
  • Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold.
  • Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply.
  • Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment.
