Summary: Alabama has a problem: abuse and misuse of prescription and illicit drugs. The problem is compounded by a lack of coordination among law enforcement, medical services personnel, regulatory groups, health care professionals, and public health agencies. Alabama has one of the highest rates of prescription pain medications sold per 10,000 residents. While the use of these medications certainly provides necessary pain relief for many Alabamians, the reality is that illegal use of this group of medications has reached near epidemic levels in our state. Research has demonstrated that prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMP) – like that found in Alabama – can lead to sustained, decreased prescribing of Schedule II opioids. While effective, PDMP use does not fully address the problem, and it does not address the problem of illicit drug abuse, which is an equally significant problem. Open, routine dialogue between law enforcement, medical services personnel, first responders, regulatory groups, health care professionals, and public health agencies is needed to develop coordinated efforts to (1) combating the use and abuse of illicit drugs, (2) prevention of inappropriate use of prescription pain medications, and (3) appropriate ways to address situations of real or perceived inappropriate use of prescription pain medications. To advance efforts to address this problem, Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy and the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs have partnered to host an interprofessional conference that will bring together experts from law enforcement, medical services, first responders, regulatory boards, health care, and public health to identify practical strategies to confront the challenging situations surrounding prescription medications and illicit drugs with high potential for addiction.
