Our effort

The American Medical Association encourages physicians to register patients in state-sponsored prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) and advocate to ensure the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act receives the largest amount of funds possible. Together, we can begin to reverse this epidemic

180% increase

in PDMP registrations from 2014-2016.

+136 million 

PDMPs checked in 2016.

Our stance

The opioid crisis is complex with no single solution, and we need a multi-pronged public health approach. Reforms are absolutely critical to seriously address the preventable epidemic that plagues our country.
