Safe Project and Athletico Logos

In October, SAFE Project and Athletico Physical Therapy teamed up with the creators of the Deterra® Drug Deactivation and Disposal System to bring safe, effective drug deactivation to households nationwide through the Gone for Good® at-home medication disposal campaign.

For the fourth straight campaign, requests for Deterra Pouches exceeded campaign goals. More than 22,000 pouches were requested by households in 48 states and the District of Columbia.

“Opioid dependence often starts in the home medicine cabinet, easily accessed by family members or visitors. Through our partnership with Deterra, we can help keep medications out of the wrong hands.”

Prevention is about more than dispensing less; it’s about properly removing the excess supply of medications. Without doing so, these medications can be stolen, abused or leaked into our ecosystem, contaminating our soil and water.

Deterra is the only independently tested, safe and environmentally sound solution for the permanent destruction of opioids, prescription and over the counter medication. Our solution doesn’t just mask medications in a gel or liquid. The patented approach is scientifically proven to completely destroy pills, patches, liquids, creams and films. Get a full tutorial on how to use our products.

How Deterra Works

Tear open pouch – do not remove inner pod(s). Place unused medications inside.

Fill pouch halfway with warm water and wait 30 seconds for air to release. Some foaming may occur.

Seal pouch tightly, gently shake and dispose of normal household trash.

Safe for Everyone. Safe for the Environment.

in addition to preventing addiction, proper drug disposal benefits our environment. Deterra is made with environmentally sound, non-toxic materials to prevent drugs from seeping into our land and water systems.
