2. Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

The Missouri Nurses Association supports the Narcotics Control Act which establishes a PDMP in Missouri.  Missouri has a significant problem with prescription drug abuse, yet we are the only state in the nation that does not track addictive prescription drugs. Establishing a controlled substance monitoring program will curb abuse, save lives, and fight crime.
