Learn about trends in controlled substance prescribing and surveillance of populations that receive such prescribed medication.

Available Reports and Data

It is important to emphasize that understanding the problems related to prescription drug misuse, abuse and diversion requires analysis of data from many sources (e.g. hospital emergency rooms for admissions for drug overdoses, police records for pharmacy thefts, data from methadone clinics, which are not reported to the MA PMP, substance abuse treatment information), and the perspectives and experience of community stakeholders.  The measures developed by PMP and associated reports generated by the program are only one data source.
