Guide to State-by-State Opioid Prescribing Policies


Physicians and others involved with prescribing controlled substances must be well-versed in the legal requirements including knowledge of both federal and state law. The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) is the federal law that regulates such substances. The CSA is a rather complete and functional law and provides an operational framework the prescriber should understand. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) publishes a guide for prescribers entitled "Practitioner's Manual, an Informational Outline of the Controlled Substances Act." This resource provides a comprehensive overview of the Controlled Substances Act and the federal requirements for prescribing controlled substances.

Additionally, all states have further regulations involving controlled substances. The physician should be aware that state laws often impose additional, stricter requirements on prescribing controlled substances. Physicians must be aware of these regulations to practice lawfully within their local jurisdiction and in compliance with State Board of Medicine regulations.
