Fact Sheet: Indian Health Service and Military Medical Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Requirements

Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) can help clinicians improve decisions regarding opioid prescribing. However, since state laws and regulations governing access to these systems often apply only to providers licensed in the states in which the PDMP is located, and many federal health care workers are not so licensed, many federal providers are not subject to requirements. This fact sheet outlines the policies of the three federal health care institutions with regard to the use of PDMPs when prescribing opioids.

Fact Sheet: Legal Interventions to Increase Access to Naloxone in Indiana

Drug overdose claimed the lives of more than 63,000 Americans in 2016. The majority of these deaths, over 42,000, involved opioids such as heroin, prescription painkillers, and, increasingly, illicitly manufactured fentanyl. Indiana is not immune to this national crisis. In 2003, for example, only three Indiana residents died from heroin-related overdose. In 2016, the number was 296.
