NASCSA Receives $200,000 Grant from Purdue Pharma L.P. to Support State Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs
Date:10/18/2011

PORTLAND, Maine, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of State Controlled Substances Authorities (NASCSA) announced receipt of a $200,000 grant from Purdue Pharma L.P. today at the organization's 27th annual conference in Portland, Maine. The grant is part of Purdue Pharma's ongoing efforts to support the operation, expansion and awareness of appropriately-designed state prescription drug monitoring programs, which can be an effective tool to address prescription drug abuse and diversion. Purdue has supported NASCSA efforts to strengthen and fund state PMPs for the last three years.

NASCSA will manage the solicitation, review and funding of grant proposals. State government agencies or departments will be selected based on an independent review by the NASCSA Special Projects Committee, which consists of association members with expertise in the fields of prescription drug abuse and diversion and prescription drug monitoring programs. Purdue Pharma will have no input into the final selection process.  

"State budgets are shrinking, but the abuse and diversion of prescription drug problem is a growing concern, said Ralph Orr, NASCSA secretary, treasurer and special projects chairman. "Purdue Pharma's funding of state prescription drug monitoring programs will help keep these medications out of the wrong hands while ensuring legitimate patients have access to the medications they need."

The grant monies are scheduled to be distributed by NASCSA to various state government departments or agencies with the ability to accept private funding expressly for their state prescription monitoring program by the end of 2012.

"Since 2001, Purdue Pharma has been working to support the implementation of appropriately-designed prescription monitoring programs as one way to help reduce abuse and diversion of prescription medications," said Alan Must, vice president of state government and public affairs at Purdue Pharma.
