Join Johns Hopkins in the Fight Against Drug Misuse!
Johns Hopkins Medicine participates in the Drug Enforcement Administration's National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. During the October 2020 event, participating sites including Sibley Memorial Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and The Johns Hopkins Hospital collected a total of 498 pounds of medication. Nationwide this event brought in nearly a million pounds of unused, expired and unwanted medications– the largest amount ever collected in the program's ten-year history.
Including the Johns Hopkins pharmacy take-back bins, our total now exceeds 2000 pounds (1 ton) of medication collected and disposed of in a safe, environmentally friendly way.
The next event will be held in April, 2021. Details will be posted here as they become available.
