Michigan Opioid Laws

This poster, placed in your waiting or exam rooms, helps patients understand the requirements and limitations, mandated by Michigan law, when writing for prescription opioids.

 

How will the Michigan opioid laws impact your care?

BEFORE YOU RECEIVE AN OPIOID PRESCRIPTION, YOUR DOCTOR…

  • Will educate you about the risks of opioid use
  • Will have you sign a form stating you received the education
  • Will only write a maximum 7-day prescription for acute pain
  • Will run and review a MAPS* report of your medication history

 

*MAPS, Michigan Automated Prescription System, is a tool that tracks past and current prescriptions written for you.
