Servicing the New Jersey Chatham area for over 70 years, Bradley & Son Funeral Home, has decided to partner with the Madison Chatham Coalition to help families dispose of leftover prescription drugs from the deceased.
After the passing of a loved one family members have the responsibility to clean out the space of the departed. Beyond the beloved items can come medicine cabinets full of prescriptions, especially true of the elderly or those who struggled with a disease or health condition. These drugs can be dangerous if not disposed correctly as they can fall into the wrong hands or go to the garbage and contaminate the earth.
The Madison Chatham Coalition is a community prevention organization funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. To help combat these issues the Coalition is partnering with Bradley & Sons funeral home to educate and inform the funeral homes’ clients about proper prescription drug disposal. As well as provide complimentary Deterra envelopes, which are drug disposal kits that deactivate substances for trash disposal.
The patented Deterra® Drug Deactivation System is powered by proprietary MAT12® Molecular Adsorption Technology, which deactivates drugs using activated carbon. Deterra is highly effective in adsorbing and firmly binding drugs, rendering them inert, unavailable for misuse and safe for the environment.
An interesting offering and partnership that could be beneficial for families, the community, and the planet.
