Arizona Prescription Monitoring Program
The Arizona Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), housed in the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy, collects data on all controlled substance prescriptions in Arizona (schedules II-V). This information assists healthcare providers in making better-informed care decisions when treating patients. The PMP also helps prevent the diversion and misuse of controlled substances at the provider, pharmacy, and patient levels. For more information about the PMP, please click here.
