CURES / PDMP
Pursuant to California Health & Safety Code Section 11190, and Business & Professions Code Section 1170, all licensees who dispense Schedule II through IV controlled substances must provide the dispensing information to the Department of Justice on a weekly basis. The information is compiled in a database called the Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES) that contains over 100 million entries of controlled substance drugs that have been dispensed in California. Practitioners who register can access the CURES database through the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) to look up clients prior to dispensing or writing prescriptions for controlled substances.
