The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Training and Technical Assistance Center (PDMP TTAC) at Brandeis University provides a comprehensive array of services, support, resources, and strategies to PDMPs, federal partners and other stakeholders to further the efforts and effectiveness of PDMPs in combating the misuse, abuse and diversion of prescription drugs.
Since all states (except for one), the District of Columbia, and Guam have enacted PDMP legislation - and all have active programs - our focus is to improve consistency and alignment among PDMP’s, facilitate coordination between PDMPs and state and national stakeholders, increase PDMP efficiencies, measure performance and effectiveness, and promote best practices.
To better support our stakeholders, streamline our operations and efficiently deliver our services, TTAC and the PDMP Center of Excellence (COE) have merged into a single program. The services and support provided by these two programs will now be available through TTAC.
The TTAC website is being reorganized and redesigned to include resources and other content from the COE website. We apologize for any inconvenience during this transition period. If you need assistance in locating items on the TTAC site, please let us know.
In addition to the COE content, the TTAC website now has information and reports concerning the Prescription Behavior Surveillance System (PBSS). PBSS is an early warning surveillance and evaluation tool to measure trends in controlled substance prescribing and dispensing as well as indicators of medical use and possible non-medical prescription drug abuse and diversion.
