The Louisiana Attorney General’s office and the Red River Council on Aging are working to get old or no longer needed prescription drugs from falling into the wrong hands. Drug deactivation pouches are being provided to the council for local distribution.
The drug deactivation pouches are one of the many ways our office has provided our State a way to get prescription drugs out of the wrong hands. We found that 60% of opioid addicts start their addiction with someone else’s prescription.
To prevent that from happening in your household, dispose of unused, unwanted, and expired prescription medication using the drug deactivation pouches available at the council.
