Join Johns Hopkins in the Fight Against Drug Misuse!

On Saturday, April 24, 2021 Johns Hopkins Medicine participated in the Drug Enforcement Administration's National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Our 5 participating sites include:

Johns Hopkins Bayview
The Johns Hopkins Hospital
Howard County General Hospital
Sibley Memorial Hospital
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

These 5 locations collected a total of 990 pounds of medication. Over 567 community members brought their unused or expired medication to this contactless event where our pharmacy team disposed of them safely.

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 2900 pounds  of medication collected and disposed of in a safe, environmentally friendly way.

For more information about the event, contact the Johns Hopkins pharmacy team at 1-866-679-0707 or pharmacycomments@jhmi.edu.
