Fentanyl Abuse and Opioid Prevention in Arizona

The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy developed a Controlled Substance Prescription Monitoring Program or PMP. Access to this program is given to health professionals, such as physicians, dentists, and pharmacists. In 2007 the legislation was passed to establish the PMP. The law requires any pharmacies and medical practitioners who dispense Schedule II, III, and IV controlled substances to report prescription information. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the current opioid prescribing rate in 2018 within the state was 50.7 per 100 people, which is slightly lower than the national average of 51.4 per 100 people. As of February of 2020, per the Arizona Department of Health Services, 136,720 opioid prescriptions were dispensed the previous month in the state. Approximately 49.3% of prescribers who prescribed opioids or benzodiazepines have lookups in the Controlled Substances Prescription Monitoring Program.

Within the state of Arizona, there is an unavoidable issue with the abuse of fentanyl. In 2019, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Arizona proceeded to an inspection and seized millions of dollars worth of fentanyl. The drug also caused many deaths. Just in 2017, synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, were involved in 267 deaths, which is an extreme rise if we consider that in 2017, that number was at 36 deaths, according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA). This confirms that the problem of fentanyl addiction is definitely present and has caused so much damage in Arizona.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
