Today, communities and families across the U.S. are facing a serious opioid and heroin crisis. Here in South Jersey, that crisis is a reality for far too many families.

How Our Drug Abuse Prevention Program Works 

Here at Inspira Health, we are committed to improving the lives of all of our community members and sometimes that means going beyond the walls of our hospitals. In an effort to prevent the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs, we have partnered with The Southwest Council to provide community agencies with the Deterra Drug Deactivation System free of charge. 

Deterra is a drug deactivation product that can be used for easy and environmentally friendly disposal of prescription drugs. It uses a molecular absorption technology to neutralize active chemicals in prescription drugs when water is added. By partnering with community agencies, home care and hospice workers, funeral homes, realtors and others, our goal is to reduce the amount of old or unused prescription drugs in homes and stop addiction before it begins. 

Learn more about how Deterra can help prevent drug abuse.
