Safe Medication Storage
BCDAC, Inc. encourages the safe storage and disposal of medications in your home. In addition to making Narcan accessible to community members, Safer Lock Boxes and Deterra Bags are available at BCDAC, Inc. while supplies last.
Safer Lock Boxes
The Safer Lock medicine box lets you store all of your prescription and over-the-counter medications in one secure place. The lock box uses Safer Lock’s patented 4 digit combination lock. Securing your medications is easy; choose your combination and set the lock. You can even register your combination for easy recovery in the event you forget your personal code.
Deterra Bags are a drug deactivation system. A person using the Deterra® Drug Deactivation System simply puts his or her medication in a bag containing a carbon that bonds to pharmaceutical compounds when water is added. The person adds water and shakes it up to neutralize the active ingredient in the drug. The Deterra Bag can hold up to 45 pills, 6 oz. liquid or 6 patches.
