Maine Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) Resources

The Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a valuable resource utilized by prescribers, pharmacists, as well as other healthcare and public health experts to combat the misuse, abuse, and diversion of prescription medications.  The Maine PMP was established with the primary purpose of preventing and identifying instances of prescription drug misuse, abuse, and diversion within the state.

The Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) serves as a secure database employed throughout the State of Maine to enhance public health. It accomplishes this by offering valuable information regarding the usage of controlled substances before they are prescribed or dispensed. This program plays a pivotal role in the State of Maine’s Opioid Response Strategy, as it effectively reduces both the volume and frequency of opioid and controlled substance prescriptions.
