Deterra Drug Deactivation System
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 Inspira Health Network along 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.
Other methods to Dispose of Prescription Medications Properly in your home
Medicines play an important role in treating many conditions and diseases and when they are no longer needed it is important to dispose of them properly to help reduce harm from accidental exposure or intentional misuse.
DROP BOX LOCATIONS
In an effort to stop the abuse of prescription drugs, NJ consumers are able to bring expired and/or unwanted medications to local police department headquarters who are participating in New Jersey's Project Medicine Drop (NJPMD). Individuals from anywhere in New Jersey can visit the boxes seven days a week, to drop off unneeded and expired medications - and keep them away from those at risk of abusing them.

BE INFORMED About What Might Happen.
Emergency preparedness is not the sole concern of Californians for earthquakes, those who live in "Tornado Alley"; or Gulf Coast residents because of hurricanes. Most communities may be impacted by several types of hazards during a lifetime. Americans also travel more than ever before; to areas impacted by hazards they may not be at risk of near their homes. Knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
MAKE A PLAN
Ready.gov has made it simple for you to make a family emergency plan. Download the Family Emergency Plan (FEP) (PDF - 508 Kb) and fill out the sections before printing it or emailing it to your family and friends.
BUILD A KIT
A disaster supplies kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them.
You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it might take days.
Additionally, basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment and telephones may be cut off for days or even a week, or longer. Your supplies kit should contain items to help you manage during these outages.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
