Saturday is National Prescription Pill Take-Back Day
Posted Friday, April 25th 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News - Joe Michaels

With the continuing problem of substance abuse in our country, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is joining with area law-enforcement agencies for another "prescription pill take-back day."

You're being given an opportunity to rid your home of expired and unwanted prescription drugs,

"April 26th from 10am-2pm is the eighth national 'take-back day' which provides more than 4,000 drop off locations nationwide," said Chris Hoover.

Hoover, with the Sacramento DEA, recommends bringing your unwanted meds to one of the many drop off locations in the area because medicines that linger in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion and misuse.

"For those 12 and older who abuse prescription drugs, 54% get those drugs from a family member or friend for free so most of the drugs, the prescription drugs, that are being abused are coming right out of our own medicine cabinets," he explained.

There are some limits to what you can drop off.  Introvenous solutions, hypodermic needles and injection medication will not be accepted.  Nor will any illegal substances like marijuana or methamphetamine.

Here is a list of locations in the state, centered on the 95815 area code and moving out (courtesy of DEA):
