The mission of the Office of Provider Engagement and Regulation (OPER) is to provide a
center of support for prescribers and dispensers to better promote professional education, informed clinical decision-making, best practices and innovation so that
Maryland patients experience optimal access, efficacy and safety in connection
with controlled substances.
OPER was formed February 2019 and consists of the Office of Controlled Substances Administration (OCSA) and the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP).
The OCSA and the PDMP continue to prioritize all existing directives, and OPER
maintains all mandated requirements and restrictions related to data access.
