Preventing Prescription Medicine Abuse:

Drug Deactivation Pouch Demonstration

The Deterra Project provides free at-home drug-deactivation pouches to community residents promoting safe medicine usage, storage and disposal.  The user-friendly pouch deactivates prescription drugs and renders contents safe for landfills. After filling the specially formulated pouch with prescription drugs and regular tap water, it can be sealed and thrown away with the household trash. You can pick up a free drug deactivation pouch at the pharmacy counters of Acme Fresh Market Pharmacy and Summit County Discount Drug Mart stores.  SCCP is grateful to the more than 70 community partners who are  distributing drug deactivation pouches.  Distribution Partners List Additional information about The Deterra Project can be accessed here:
