The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA's) Final Rule for the Disposal of Controlled Substances, which implements the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, was recently made available online (click here). The Act, in an effort to curtail the prescription drug abuse epidemic, authorized DEA to develop and implement regulations that outline methods to transfer unused or unwanted pharmaceutical controlled substances to authorized collectors for the purpose of disposal.  The Act also permits long-term-care facilities to do the same on behalf of residents or former residents of their facilities. The Final Rule took effect on October 9 and can be viewed here.
