PDMP Registration


California Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)

The California Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), CURES, is committed to assisting in the reduction of pharmaceutical drug diversion without affecting legitimate medical practice and patient care.

The CURES system is designed to identify and deter drug abuse and diversion through accurate and rapid tracking of Schedule II through IV controlled substances. It is a valuable investigative, preventive and educational tool for law enforcement, regulatory boards, educational researchers, and the healthcare community.

The Department of Justice PDMP system allows pre-registered users including licensed healthcare prescribers, pharmacists authorized to dispense controlled substances, law enforcement, and regulatory boards to access timely patient prescription history information to better identify and prevent the abuse of prescription drugs. The role of the PDMP entrusts that well informed prescribers and pharmacists can and will use their professional expertise to evaluate their patients care and assist those patients who may be abusing controlled substances.

In order to obtain access to the PDMP System you must submit a registration form electronically. Please be sure to complete the correct form:
