“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

Deterra Disposal Step 1
Tear open pouch – do not remove inner pod(s). Place unused medications inside.
Deterra Disposal Step 2
Fill pouch halfway with warm water and wait 30 seconds for air to release. Some foaming may occur.
Deterra Disposal Step 3
Seal pouch tightly, gently shake and dispose of in 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.
