Combatting the Prescription Drug Overdose Epidemic

The number of Californians that are overdosing due to prescription drugs has been rising. California has the third-highest number of deaths related to opioid overdose, and the number of emergency room visits due to opioids continues to rise. California has one of the oldest prescription drug monitoring programs in the country, Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES), which helps law enforcement, providers, and policymakers better identify overprescribing and substance disorder abuse.
