Utilization of Texas Prescription Monitoring Program: A Texas Pain Society White Paper The United States currently has a prescription drug abuse epidemic (1). The unintentional lethal prescription overdoses (OD) has increased in proportion to opioid prescribing patterns (2). Opioids are the primary drug resulting in these preventable deaths. For each unintentional lethal prescription OD, 9 people are admitted for substance abuse treatment, 35 visit the emergency department, 161 people report drug abuse or dependency, and 461 individuals report non-medical use of opioid analgesics (1). Among the victims of lethal prescription OD, the rural and more impoverished counties, Medicaid populations, and mental illness are over represented (1, 2). Deaths from opioid prescriptions now exceeds deaths from cocaine and heroin combined (fig 1).
