Organized Prescription Drug Collection Programs May Have Minimal Impact on Reducing Availability of Controlled Medications

Non-medical use of prescription drugs is the second most common form of illicit substance abuse in the country, trailing only marijuana use. Disposal of unused medications through community-wide take-back events and permanent drop boxes is a strategy that is widely employed to reduce the availability of controlled medications for improper use and abuse. But according to a study by Wake Forest Baptist researchers, these programs may be minimally effective in reducing the availability of controlled medications.
