SAN ANTONIO – The Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public an opportunity to take part in its annual National Prescription Drug Take Back on Oct. 27. 

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at various locations.

The program helps prevent prescription drug abuse, opioid abuse and theft by ridding homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.
