The Indiana Attorney General’s Prescription Drug Abuse Task force is made up of over 80 state legislators, law enforcement, health officials, physicians, members of the medical community, pharmacists, state and local agencies and education providers. The force is working together to provide resources for clinicians specific to prescription drug misuse and abuse.
The goal is not to make it harder to treat patients. The goal is to have a working group that includes physicians across the state to help understand the challenges of this patient population. It is about better understanding and minimizing the growing number of those with addiction. This area will be populated with details that will help provide resources to physicians/clinicians as they begin to see public awareness rise.
