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.
