Defining and Evaluating In-Home Drug Disposal Systems for Opioid Analgesics

The proper disposal of unused or expired prescription drugs, particularly controlled substances, is critically important to help prevent a serious risk of nonmedical use or overdose. Several in-home drug disposal systems are currently available. However, how well these systems work to achieve the public health goal of mitigating the risk of nonmedical opioid use and overdose is not fully understood. This public workshop will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to examine the in-home drug disposal systems, with a focus on removing unused opioid analgesics from the home. The content of this workshop will inform a framework to evaluate the scientific merit and practical implementation of these disposal systems.
