“Pharmacists play a critical role in reducing prescription drug abuse by practicing responsible dispensing of painkillers and educating patients, and now the new Deterra program provides us all with a proven tool to empower patients to safely deactivate and dispose of leftover medications at home,” says Hooshang Shanehsaz, RPh, DPH and Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities pharmacy director, Cardinal Health director of pharmacy and past president of the Delaware Pharmacists Society. “It offers a convenient, cost-effective way to remove medications from the home, and ultimately prevent prescription drug abuse from starting.”​
