The Center for Public Health Practice is hosting its semi-annual Drug Take Back Day on April 4, during National Public Health Week (NPHW)!
Drug Take Back Day provides a safe, convenient, and responsible method for students, faculty, staff and the public to dispose of prescription drugs and medications. Flushing, and even trashing medications, can harm the environment and contaminate waterways.
In partnership with campus security, we will accept:
- prescription drugs
- controlled substances
- over-the-counter medications
- veterinary medications
Please deliver all items in a bag. No sharps will be accepted at this time.
All medications collected will be considered anonymous and will be incinerated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) following the event.

Same day, time, and place
In addition to Drug Take Back, the Center for Public Health Practice has partnered with the IUPUI 50th Anniversary team to host a Zombie Apocalypse Scavenger Hunt. After dropping off your unused medications, join the hunt to uncover the public health mystery and receive a free t-shirt at the end!
