Healthcare providers are at the forefront of the fight against prescription drug misuse. Ensuring unused medications are disposed of properly by patients at home and by staff in your facility can reduce the risk of drug misuse and diversion. Deterra’s patented medication disposal pouches, containers and accessories are a scientifically proven solution to permanently deactivate medication at home or in a clinical setting.

In a simple 3-step process, a user deactivates the drugs by putting them in a Deterra pouch or container, adding water, sealing, shaking and throwing it away. It’s truly that simple.

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.

Providing Deterra is setting an evidence-based standard of care. This is something that others across the country should be doing to meet community and patient needs for proper medication disposal.
