Virginia Prescription Monitoring Program
Virginia’s Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a 24/7 database containing information on dispensed Schedule II-IV prescriptions and drugs of concern. The primary purpose of the PMP is to promote safe prescribing and dispensing practices for covered substances by providing timely and essential information to healthcare providers. Law enforcement and health profession licensing boards use the PMP to support investigations related to doctor shopping, diversion, and inappropriate prescribing and dispensing.
On Saturday, April 28, 2018, Virginia will participate in the 15th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, a DEA sponsored initiative providing citizens of the Commonwealth with an opportunity to dispose of potentially dangerous controlled substances from their medicine cabinets in an environmentally safe manner.
Healthcare professionals are encouraged to read a letter from DHP Director Dr. David Brown.
The latest PMP annual report is now available. Download the Virginia Prescription Monitoring Program Quarterly Report: Oct 1st – Dec 31st 2017 to view summaries and statistics.
