Screening Tools

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

The Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) was established by the Maryland Department of Health and the Behavioral Health Administration to support healthcare providers and their patients in the safe and effective use of prescription drugs.
