Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

The Alaska Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) is Alaska's solution for monitoring Schedule II-IV controlled substances dispensed in Alaska. This program is designed to improve patient care and to encourage cooperation and coordination among state, local, and federal agencies and other states to reduce the misuse, abuse, and diversion of controlled substances. The controlled substance prescription database “PDMP” is delivered through the AWARxE platform and can be accessed by clicking here: You’ll find helpful information and resources in the links below and in the sidebar located to the right of this page.

Due to multiple recent vacancies on staff and increased COVID-related workloads, we are currently unable to return calls and emails within our normal processing times. Our primary focus is on reviewing and issuing licenses. If you have applied for licensure, please check the MY LICENSE online portal for real-time updates on the progress of your application. Answers to most other questions can be located using the links on the right-hand side of the page. Thank you for your patience while we attend to these priorities, and we will respond to your inquiry within five business days.
