National Take Back Day

Keep them safe. Clean them out. Take them back.

The Birmingham VA Health Care System joins Alabama and the nation participating in the bi-annual DEA National Prescription Take Back Day, later this month.

It is time to dispose of unused controlled substance prescriptions. All too often, unneeded medications are lost, misused, or stolen. The Birmingham VA is proud to offer three collection sites for Veterans and our neighbors to DUMP unused controlled substance prescription medications. Veterans and the public may use the following VA sites to safely turn in the medications.

In April 2022, 3,575 pounds of medications were collected in Alabama.

The Birmingham VA is proud to be part of the community and provide another resource to keep our neighborhoods safe.
