Crush The Crisis. Opioid Take Back Day

Giving communities we serve a healthier tomorrow

The opioid crisis has been declared a public health emergency. Every day, more than 130 people in the United States die from opioid-related drug overdoses. The misuse of prescription opioids often begins when they are obtained from a friend or family member’s medicine cabinet.

HCA Healthcare invites you to “Crush the Crisis” by participating in an opioid take back event near you. Hospital staff and volunteers from more than 65 HCA Healthcare facilities, spanning 15 states, will partner with local law enforcement on Saturday, September 7th* to raise awareness about opioid addiction and to collect unused and expired prescription medications. (*Please note that select locations will host take back events on September 21st and October 26th).
