The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office received a donation of approximately 3,000 Deterra Drug Deactivation System kits from the Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI).
These kits allow citizens to dispose of unused prescription pills, liquid, or patches in an environmentally safe way and do not require you to locate a prescription pill drop-off site to dispose of these unwanted items. The kit allows citizens to simply place their unused prescription meds in the pouch, fill it half-way with warm water, wait 30 seconds, seal the pouch, and then dispose of it in the trash can.
Anyone interested in obtaining kits should stop by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to pick one or more up, free of any cost.
As a public service, RALI is supporting the distribution of this Deterra Drug Deactivation System to promote the removal from circulation of unwanted drugs, including opioids. Please carefully follow the instructions supplied by Deterra, including filling the pouch half-way up with water and disposing of it in your normal trash. Please do not return the used pouch. The item is not intended for sale or resale.
