April 28th is National Drug Take Back Day!

Twice a year, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) partners with States and local communities to set up pop-up sites for
prescription drug disposal.
In light of the opioid epidemic impacting Vermont as well as the rest of the country, this program provides a distinct opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
Do you have prescription drugs that you need to dispose of? Vermont 2-1-1 is here to help. To find out about Drug Take Back Day sites, call us directly at 211 or text your zip code to 898211.
You can also check out our Community Resource Database for information on sites open year-round.

Vermont 2-1-1 as Part of an N-1-1 System
