The Drug Control Program (DCP), in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, promotes access to safe and effective pharmaceutical care services in Massachusetts and protects consumers against fraud, deception and unsafe practices in the distribution, handling and use of pharmaceuticals and medical devices. The Program has statutory responsibility to set standards for the control of prescribing, dispensing and administration of pharmaceuticals by health care providers as well as distribution of pharmaceuticals by health care facilities (e.g. hospitals, clinics, long-term care) and other entities (e.g. manufacturers, distributors, community-based programs). The DCP undertakes initiatives to promote effective security and accountability measures and to prevent theft, tampering, misuse and abuse of drugs.
