Activities and programs of the Department of Health and Senior Services ensure the safe and legal handling and distribution of narcotics and dangerous drugs used in the manufacture of controlled substances in Missouri. The department also works with law enforcement and other agencies to minimize the abuse of controlled substances in the state.
- Maintaining a registry, as required by state law, of the individuals and firms who prescribe, dispense or otherwise conduct activities which involve controlled substances.
- Encouraging proper management of controlled substances through routine inspections and audits of the records which must be kept by firms and individuals who lawfully manufacture, distribute, or dispense controlled substances.
- Investigating suspected irregularities or mismanagement involving controlled substances. Such investigations originate with complaints from the general public, other government agencies or may develop from routine inspections and audits conducted by Department representatives.
