The Youth Connection's Upcoming Events

Detroit 2024 Spring DEA Takeback Day is APRIL 20th!

The drug overdose epidemic in the United States is a clear and present public health, public safety, and national security threat. DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day reflects DEA’s commitment to Americans’ safety and health, encouraging the public to remove unneeded medications from their homes as a measure of preventing medication misuse and opioid addiction from ever starting.


This year in the City of Detroit, our takeback day events will be held on SATURDAY, APRIL 20TH, from 10am until 2pm! Expired or unused medication (no liquids or gels, please!) can be dropped off at any of the sites on the flier below (all DPD precincts, Wayne State University, and Highland Park Police Department headquarters). If you have any questions, please feel free to call The Youth Connection at (313) 826-7099

The Youth Connection and the DEA is committed to making our communities safer and healthier, and we can do this by reducing overdoses and overdose deaths. While the community does its part to turn in unneeded medications and remove them from potential harm, we are doing our part to further reduce drug-related violence.
