The Laurel Health Centers are launching a free drug-disposal program to safely and conveniently deactivate old or unused prescriptions at home.
Through a grant by Amerisource Bergen, Free Deterra Drug Deactivation pouches are now available at all six Laurel Health Center throughout Tioga County. The pouch uses an activated carbon to neutralize pills, patches, and liquid drugs, rendering them ineffective, then safely sealing them away to prevent pollution or illicit use.
Kits are available at all 6 Laurel Health Centers. To find the center closest to you, call 1-888-LAURELHC or visit LAURELHC.ORG
