Important Information Regarding the Georgia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

Beginning July 1, 2018, all prescribers with a DEA number in Georgia will be required to check the Georgia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) before prescribing opiates or cocaine derivatives listed in Schedule II drugs or benzodiazepines. The PDMP can help eliminate duplicative prescribing and overprescribing of controlled substances and provide a prescriber or pharmacist with critical information regarding a patient's controlled substance prescription history and protect patients at risk of abuse.
Appriss - PMP Aware is the data analytics system that Georgia uses for its PDMP. They have prepared the attached "How To" video and written instructions to assist you with using the PDMP. The information will help you log in, reset your password and navigate the system.
We encourage you to watch the video, review the instructions and log in and search patient records to become familiar with the PDMP before July 1, 2018.
If you need additional help or if you have questions regarding the Georgia PDMP, please call 404.463. 0772 or send an email to
