Information for Health Professionals
Health professionals are key partners in addressing the opioid epidemic. Below health professionals will find information on how they can help:
- Safely reduce opioid prescriptions
- Offer high-quality treatment for individuals with opioid use disorder
- Expand access to the life-saving medication naloxone
Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS)
MAPS, the state’s prescription drug monitoring program, is a software tool that provides prescribers and dispensers with real-time prescription data and analytics of controlled substances and schedule 2-5 drugs that have been dispensed. MAPS helps clinicians to make informed decisions and provides resources to better assess a patient’s risk for substance use disorder. To promote patient safety, Public Act 248 of 2017 requires prescribers to register with MAPS and before prescribing a Schedule 2-5 controlled substance, exceeding a three-day supply, must review a MAPS report.
If your question(s) pertain to the new opioid legislation, we encourage you to review the recently-released FAQs. Please email any additional questions that you have regarding the FAQs to BPL-MAPS@michigan.gov and the LARA and DHHS policy teams will review and determine whether the FAQs need to be updated. Please call our customer support team if you have questions about how to register for or use MAPS.
