Drug diversions are not only a regulatory issue, they can also lead to patient safety issues.

Get your new DEA-222 forms before October 30, 2021. The old DEA-222 form will no longer be used after this date. Don’t wait until the last minute to get yours. Delays could happen for a variety of reasons, leaving you without the ability to order certain controlled substances. If you haven’t already done so, act now to avoid alterations or interruptions in patient care.
