National Prescription Drug Threat Assessment 2009

National Prescription Drug Threat Assessment 2009

This assessment focuses primarily on domestic diversion of controlled prescription drugs (CPDs). It examines current nonmedical use of prescription-type psychotherapeutic drugs (opioid pain relievers, tranquilizers, sedatives, or stimulants) and discusses their distribution, the societal impact of CPD diversion and abuse, and Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) that have been established legislatively in many states to stem CPD diversion and abuse. This assessment also examines regional deviations from national trends.
