Grant Update: Prescription Monitoring Program Enhancement One of the priorities identified by the Criminal Justice Improvement Committee for the 2012 - 2013 grant cycle addresses the diversion and misuse of prescription drugs. The 2010 National Survey of Drug Use and Health indicates that more than 7 million persons aged 12 and older had used psychotherapeutic prescription-type drugs for non-medical reasons in the month prior to the survey. While non-medical prescription drug abuse declined for the 12 to 17 age group, from 4.0 percent in 2009 to 3.0 percent in 2010, the rate for the population aged 18 to 25 was 5.9 percent. For the group aged 12 and older, 55 percent obtained prescription drugs from a friend or relative for free; 17.6 percent obtained medications from a physician. Only 4.4 percent indicated that they obtained prescription-type drugs from a drug dealer and less than one percent obtained their prescription medications online. The National Institute on Drug Abuse indicated that in 2009, approximately 4.6 million emergency room visits were drug related. Of those, approximately 2.1 million were related to drug abuse; 27.1 percent of those visits were related to the nonmedical use of prescription drugs.
