The City of Nevada and the Vernon County Commission have passed ordinances to support the first county in Southwest Missouri to enter voluntarily into a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.
The Saint Louis County 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. This program’s goals are to improve controlled substance prescribing by providing critical information regarding a patient’s controlled substance prescription history. And in addition, inform clinical practice by identifying patients at high-risk who would benefit from early intervention. And finally, this program would reduce the number of people who misuse, abuse, or overdose while making sure patients have access to safe, effective treatments. Healthy Nevada was instrumental in generating stakeholder interest and quick adoption of a local PDMP policy.
