Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (or PDMP) monitors the prescribing and dispensing of schedule II-IV controlled substances to assist in the identification and prevention of prescription drug misuse and abuse. The program’s goals are to: 

  1. Improve controlled substance prescribing by providing critical information regarding a patient’s controlled substance prescription history. 
  2. Inform clinical practice by identifying patients at high-risk who would benefit from early interventions. 
  3. Reduce the number of people who misuse, abuse, or overdose while making sure patients have access to safe, effective treatment
