Prescription Drug Misuse & Abuse Initiative

Stop Rx AbuseAzCRH works with the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the UA College of Medicine, Office of Continuing Medical Education (CME) to create and market the CME Safe and Effective Opioid Prescribing While Managing Acute and Chronic Pain and other online modules, including an upcoming Prescription Drug 101 training for physicians.
