PDAPP's primary efforts are for the sole purpose of preventing, reducing and eliminating "Diversion" of controlled substances. PDAPP monitors the practices of pharmacies and patients as it relates to these medications. PDAPP operates from the position and understanding that all entities involved in the manufacturing, distribution; sales and regulation of these medications have the common goal of safely providing medication to individuals in legitimate need. PDAPP remains objective in our approach to monitoring and reporting the compliance of individuals participating in PDAPP.
