Recognizing Seekers and Diversion in Your Clients

Michael M. Miller, MD, DFASAM, DLFAPA

Your role in recognizing prescription drug abuse among your clients, their employees and your work team will be covered. Drug diversion is a medical and legal concept involving the transfer of any legally prescribed controlled substance from the animal for whom it was prescribed to another person for any illicit use.

Necessary Controls in Handling and Prescribing Controlled Substances

Amber Davis and William Siegert, Diversion Investigators

More people report using controlled prescription drugs than cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine combined.1

This trend is seen in all geographic areas – rural and urban – and in all demographics – young and old.

Veterinary clinics are required to provide effective control procedures to guard against theft and diversion of controlled substances such as physical security controls, operating procedures and diversion prevention. During this session, you will learn more about what those legal requirements are and how you can protect your clinic.
