MBP Releases Opioid and Benzodiazepine Analytical Report

"Today we are publishing a detailed report on Opioids and Benzodiazepines prescribed and dispensed in Mississippi. We have received multiple inquiries on this issue. This report offers all stakeholders accurate information. The Mississippi Board of Pharmacy takes seriously our responsibility to the citizens of Mississippi. Part of that responsibility is not only collecting data through the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), but additionally in the detailed analysis of that data. We will continue in our detailed study of this data. In our effort to find ways to battle the Opioid Crisis in Mississippi, it is our hope this information will be used to make appropriate and practical decisions." - -  Steve Parker, Deputy Director, Mississippi Board of Pharmacy
