Reliable and simple service solutions for drug disposal

With safety at the forefront of its solutions, healthcare facilities are choosing Daniels for customer-focused and cost-effective denaturing and disposal of Controlled Substances.

Why Controlled Substance Disposal

In healthcare facilities, the management and handling of controlled substances are governed by strict regulations set forth by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in the United States. These substanc-es are categorized into schedules based on their potential for abuse, medical use, and safety. Regardless of their categorization, all DEA scheduled drugs require specialized containment that complies with the disposal requirements of controlled substance waste streams. Healthcare facilities must comply with these regulations to ensure safe and secure storage, distribution, and ultimately the disposal of controlled substances. Compliance with DEA regulations regarding controlled substances is essential for hospitals and healthcare facilities to ensure patient safety, prevent diversion and misuse, and maintain legal and regulatory compliance.

Drug Disposal Products

Daniels provides a choice of two intelligent carbon based drug denaturing systems to meet the unique requirements of all healthcare facilities.

Daniels is proud to be an advocate and distributor of Rx Destroyera range of fast acting chemical destruction solvents that make the witness wasting of partially-used medication safe, affordable and convenient. Meeting the DEA’s non-retrievable standard, Rx Destroyer is an environmentally safe drug disposal solution that is especially helpful for controlled medications. The medication’s active ingredients are dissolved by the Rx Destroyer solution and are adsorbed and neutralized by its activated carbon. When the partially-used medication is witness wasted the waste is no longer DEA regulated.

Daniels Secure a Drug drug-deactivation products enable the easy and permanent removal of potential threats associated with medication handling, reducing risk to those most vulnerable. Formulated with activated carbon, Secure a Drug products provide a science-proven method of safely deactivating drugs prior to final disposal. According to the DEA, any destruction method applied to a controlled substance must render it “non-retrievable” and no longer available for diversion for all practical purposes. Secure a Drug products provide a safe intervention for the harmful wasting of drugs into our waterways, while providing an easy method for physicians, nurses and pharmacists to securely dispose of drugs within the healthcare setting. 

Carbon Based Drug Disposal Science

When medications are added, the liquid solution begins to breakdown or dissolve the medication immediately upon contact. 

Once medications are broken down, the activated charcoal begins a chemical digestion process that absorbs the disposed medications. 

Once absorbed, the medications are deactivated and rendered unavailable for misuse, alleviating risk of drug accessibility.
