National Drug Take Back Day

Join Kroger Health's Commitment to Creating Safer Communities

Kroger and our partner the Cardinal Health Foundation, have worked together to sponsor community drug take-back events for several years.

Since April 2018, more than 91,000 pounds of unused or expired medications were collected and properly disposed by local law enforcement.

Be part of the change and join this effort now.

1. Convenient Access to Life Saving Naloxone

Our Pharmacies offer naloxone without a prescription in states in which it is allowed under state law making it easier for families, friends, caregivers and at risk individuals to have the drug on hand if it is needed to save a life. Naloxone is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose.

2. Commitment to Providing Our Communities Options for Drug Disposal

Kroger Health has also partnered with DisposeRx to provide a convenient, at home medication disposal packets that are free of charge to customers with qualifying medications.

3. Participation in Drug Prevention Programs

Kroger Health has also partnered with EVERFI in select areas to provide high school students with drug abuse prevention education free of charge. This program is designed to help teach students about the dangers of opioid and other controlled substance medication s.

4. Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs

In 2015, Kroger was the first pharmacy chain to provide pharmacists direct access to advanced analytics that assist with evaluation to ensure that the medication is dispensed safely and for legitimate medical purpose in compliance with state regulations. This solution is enabled in 24 states today.
