Prescription Monitoring Program

The Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a secure database that is used across the State of Maine to improve public health by providing controlled substance drug use information prior to prescribing or dispensing those drugs. The PMP is a key part of the State of Maine’s Opioid Abuse strategy by decreasing the amount and frequency of opioid and controlled substances prescribing. To view more regulatory and statutory information, please see Chapter 11 Rule (Word).

Please visit the Maine Data Hub for data and reports about substance use disorder in Maine or email PMPM for other PMP related data requests.
