The Controlled Substances Prescription Monitoring Program (CSPMP) is a program developed to promote the public health and welfare by detecting diversion, abuse, and misuse of prescription medications classified as controlled substances under the Arizona Uniform Controlled Substances Act.

Senate Bill 1370 passed in 2015 removed the requirements for Arizona Veterinarians to register with and report dispensing to the Controlled Substances Prescription Monitoring Program. The law went into effect on January 1, 2016.
Step 1 for Medical Practitioners (not pharmacists or delegates - see below)
A.R.S. § 36-2606 requires each medical practitioner who is licensed under Title 32 and who possesses a DEA license to register with the CSPMP. Each DEA license should have an associated registration. There is NO fee to the practitioner for this registration. This registration includes: MD, DO, DDS, DMD, DPM, HMD, PA, NP, ND, and OD.
Residents may register using the hospital DEA number and appropriate suffix.
Accessing the Data
Step 1 for Pharmacists & Delegates OR Step 2 for Medical Practitioners
The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy Controlled Substances Prescription Monitoring Program (CSPMP) grants system access accounts to practitioners and pharmacists so that they may look up, view, and print controlled substance dispensing information on their specific patients directly via user name and password. Access is granted to individuals only—not to clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, or any other health care facility.
