Drug Take Back Days

The IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health hosts drug take back days at the IUPUI Campus Center. 

Students, staff and faculty can bring in old or expired prescription or over-the-counter drugs for proper disposal. If the drugs are brought in a bag, the bag will not be opened to determine what kinds of drugs are inside.

Statistically, 60 to 70 percent of teens report that home medicine cabinets are their source for prescription opioids. Additionally, more than half of all people who use opioids for nonmedical reasons get them from friends and family.

No sharps will be accepted at this time.
