In 2009, the DEA estimated that, on average, 6027 persons per day abused prescription pain relievers for the first time. The Center for Disease Control now attributes more overdose deaths to prescription drugs—including opioids and antidepressants—than to “street drugs” such as cocaine, heroin and amphetamines. The DEA helps health care providers recognize drug abuse and signs of diversion, and relies on their input and due diligence to combat diversion. On the other hand, DEA has aggressively pursued criminal, civil and administrative actions against physicians who facilitate prescription drug abuse and the health care facilities that fail to take required actions to minimize the risk of drug diversion. Stepped-up DEA enforcement makes diversion control a critical compliance risk area for all health care providers. Join us for an informative discussion of the latest DEA initiatives, and learn how your compliance program must account for this heightened risk area. **Most state bar organizations will only allow you to claim self-study CLE credit for watching this recording.
