Prevent the risk of overdose and the misuse of prescription drugs by including Deterra Drug Deactivation and Disposal Pouches in your benefit plans. It’s a simple, cost-effective way to save lives and fight addiction.

When one of the DEA take back event sites that we went to was full, Deterra was the only means for people to dispose of their medications. It was nice that we had the pouches because otherwise those people would have had no option for disposal.

It was good to start a conversation because a lot of people didn’t realize that this was an issue; so many people would say, ‘I have this bag of prescriptions and I had no idea what to do with it,’ and we were able to say, ‘great, use this to dispose of it.’

We know not everyone finishes their prescriptions, and [Deterra] is such a simple way to keep medication out of the wrong hands and protect the environment.
