Help Address Substance in Maryland Misuse This Fall

On October 29, the Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) of Maryland and our partners across the state will recognize the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.


Take Back Day serves as an important reminder: take this time to clean out your medicine cabinets and learn how you can safely rid your home of unused prescriptions to help end the deadly cycle of addiction.


You can participate on October 29 by taking unused or unwanted medications to the following locations:
