Jamie Daniels Foundation is cultivating and leveraging best-in-class partnerships and programs with the goal of educating and supporting communities about the prevention of use and misuse of drugs.

Preventing misuse of
prescription medication.

We are committed to addiction education and prevention to reduce risks associated with unsafe storage and disposal of prescription medications. Jamie Daniels Foundation distributes Deterra® Drug Deactivation and Disposal Pouches at all our events, and share these resources with other organizations, as a way to encourage Michiganders to safely clean out their medicine cabinets. Deterra pouches use activated carbon and tap water to render medications harmless and safe to throw away in household trash.
