Prescription Monitoring Program

Investigate Risk Map

Identifying Communities at Higher Risk of OUD

The Delaware Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) provides insight to dispensed prescriptions. A comparison of available PDMP measures shows communities with gaps in opioid use treatment. The rate of prescriptions for high dose (greater than 90 MMEs) and extended-release opioids are indicators of high need for treatment. The rate of medication-assisted treatment is an indicator of how well the community treatment needs are being met. Combining these rates in a matrix highlights areas that are in highest need of treatment.

Data limitations: PDMP does not include prescriptions dispensed by federally-funded sources, like FQHCs and the VA.
