The Deterra Disposal Pouch Giveaway Has Ended
But You Can Still Deactivate Unused Drugs At Home
We partnered with SAFE Project to give away free Deterra® Drug Deactivation and Disposal Pouches and destroy unused medications in homes across the nation. The giveaway has ended, and we’ll share results soon. In the meantime, you can continue our efforts and purchase a Deterra Disposal Pouch 3 Pack.
“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.”
– Admiral Sandy Winnefeld, SAFE Project Co-Founder
Disposal Stops Addiction Before It Starts

ABUSE A PRESCRIPTION DRUG FOR THE FIRST TIME EVERY DAY³
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 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.
