Have unused prescription drugs you need to get rid of?

Saturday, April 30 is National Take Back Day, and sites across the region will offer prescription medication disposal.

Officials are encouraging citizens to drop off unused medications, especially prescription painkillers, in light of the opioid and heroin addiction epidemic sweeping the nation. In Generation Addicted, NBC10's recent in-depth look at the epidemic in the Delaware Valley and beyond, many blamed it on over-prescription of painkillers like Percocet and OxyContin.
