The AmerisourceBergen Foundation thanks you for your interest and commitment to combating the epidemic of opioid abuse and misuse.

OVERVIEW:  This program provides organizations with access to drug deactivation pouch or packet resources that enable community members to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs in a safe and effective manner. The deactivation resources allow for local, on-site disposal and can be distributed to other organizations, individuals or households. More information about the program can be found here.

Examples of the drug deactivation resources that this program provides, includes, but is not limited to, products such as those manufactured by DisposeRx and Deterra Drug Deactivation System

ELIGIBILITY: Applications will be accepted until July 31, 2018. Previous, current or prospective customers of AmerisourceBergen Corporation (or any of its companies) are not eligible to receive resources, due to the bylaws of AmerisourceBergen Foundation. The only possible exception is a collaborative partnership with a nonprofit or municipal outreach project that has a demonstrated public benefit, as these resources are not intended for customers’ patient populations.

DISTRIBUTION:  Drug deactivation resources will be distributed utilizing AmerisourceBergen Corporation's network of U.S. distribution centers. Logistics will be determined based on the location of the organization requesting the resources, as well as the requested quantity. Once received from the AmerisourceBergen Foundation, organizations will have the discretion to determine how to distribute the resources to achieve the most efficient and effective application. In addition, recipient organizations are encouraged to work with other partner organizations to determine the distribution process, based on local community needs.
