Who We Are
An Advocate Against Drug Diversion
NarcX® was founded to combat the diversion of narcotics, amphetamines, opiates and other frequently-abused controlled substances and to provide a convenient and affordable disposal option for unused, unwanted or expired tablets, capsules and liquid medications.
Our environmentally-safe, patent-pending NarcX® solution is the ONLY available DEA-compliant liquid option for on-site medication destruction.
NarcX® is a cause-driven organization working with medical practitioners and community partners who are drug diversion advocates in their own rights. We provide solutions to hospitals, pharmacies, medical practices, law enforcement agencies, government or tribal agencies and other public-facing organizations that care about protecting their local communities from the impacts of improperly disposed-of and improperly used medications.
Through our educational programs and resources, we provide support to medical personnel, fire and police departments and other health service organizations in their efforts to become compliant with DEA policy and the Code of Federal Regulations for medication disposal and destruction.
The Science of NarcX®
David A. Schiller
Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder
David Schiller is a former DEA Assistant Special Agent in Charge with over 30 years of experience with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Beginning with his hiring as a Special Agent in 1987, he was involved in investigating some of the largest criminal drug trafficking organizations throughout the world. After serving as the Executive Assistant to the Assistant Administrator in Arlington, Virginia, Schiller was reassigned in 2009 as the Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) for the Denver Field Division. He was subsequently assigned complete supervisory oversight for the DEA’s Diversion Program. This included supervisory oversight of all of the Tactical Diversion Squads and Diversion Groups in Colorado, Utah, Montana and Wyoming. In this capacity, Schiller led the investigation of all criminal, administrative, and civil cases affecting every one of DEA’s Registrants, including manufacturers, distributors, pharmacies, hospitals, narcotic treatment providers and doctors.
In 2015, Schiller was selected to be the Vice Chair of DEA’s Diversion Field Advisory Committee (DFAC), with ultimate responsibility for coordinating all diversion related matters for every one of DEA’s 21 Field Divisions in the United States. He ended his distinguished career by finalizing the largest administrative and civil settlement against a DEA Registrant in history—the McKesson Corporation. He retired from DEA in August 2017. Schiller’s vast experience and background was invaluable in co-founding NarcX® and contributing to the development of its game-changing products.
