Methadone prescriber information

Postby ViewsAskew » Wed May 01, 2019 10:44 pm

I stumbled on this years ago and forgot about it, just found it again by accident. It only helps people in the US.

Essentially, you can see which doctors are prescribing what substances/medications in your area or state. I wondered if this might be a way to find doctors who *might* be more sympathetic to using opioids. No idea, but seems it might.

Now, I have no idea WHY Propublica publishes this! It appears related to Medicare and federal healthcare programs, but I haven't researched it.
