Drug home disposal kits available

Tangipahoa Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council (TADAC) is partnering with parish and local law enforcement to make prescription drug disposal accessible in the home.

The Deterra Drug Deactivation System is a plant-based pouch that deactivates drugs using activated carbon, making them inactive, and unavailable for misuse. Once in pouch and water is added, the drugs are non-retrievable and disposal is safe for the environment.

TADAC has distributed the Deterra Pouches to local and parish law enforcement agencies for public distribution. This is a free service to the Tangipahoa Parish community.
