Courage Center to crack down on access to prescription and OTC meds


The Courage Center (TCC) is launching a new collaboration with Lexington faith-based organizations as part of its Courage Over Stigma campaign, targeting six Lexington County drug overdose “hotspots” to reduce access to unused, expired, and unwanted medications through distribution of Deterra® Drug Deactivation System Pouches.

The easy-to-use pouches contain organic activated carbon that, when mixed with water, deactivates unused, expired, or unwanted medications at home. Additionally, Deterra’s plant-based pouches prevent harmful drugs from entering landfills and water systems.
