Abstract

As controlled-substance abuse continues to increase in the United States, clinicians find themselves on the front lines of this epidemic. State-operated prescription drug monitoring programs are a valuable resource that prescribers can use to see patients' controlled substance history. Despite some limitations, these programs have been shown to be an effective method in reducing overdose deaths and the supply of controlled substances in the community.
