SAFE Project and the creators of the Deterra® Drug Deactivation and Disposal System are teaming up for the fourth Gone for Good® at-home medication disposal campaign!
This October, SAFE Project is teaming up with Athletico Physical Therapy and the creators of the Deterra® Drug Deactivation and Disposal System for a third Gone for Good® at-home medication disposal campaign to give away free Deterra Pouches to households nationwide. Our goal is to distribute 20,000 Deterra Pouches to U.S. households, enough to destroy 1.8 million unwanted medications.
To date, more than 45,000 Deterra Pouches have been distributed through Gone for Good – enough to destroy nearly 4 million pills. Overdose deaths surged 30% in 2020, making it the deadliest year on record for U.S. overdose fatalities. It’s never been more important to ensure that unused drugs are properly disposed of to prevent them from being misused or falling into the wrong hands.
Beginning Thursday, October 1 through Sunday, October 31 households across the US can go online to DeterraSystem.com/SAFE and request a FREE Large Deterra Pouch to be sent directly to their home, free of charge [excludes Alaska and Hawaii; while supplies last]. Each Deterra pouch can deactivate up to 90 pills, 12 ounces of liquid, or up to 12 patches.
