The North Carolina Controlled Substances Reporting System (CSRS) is a web-based prescription monitoring system that allows registered dispensers to review a patient's controlled substances prescription history. The NCAFP is encouraging all members to utilize this important tool. The system is intended to assist physicians in monitoring, identifying and referring patients for specialized substance abuse treatment or specialized pain management. All prescriptions for controlled substances, schedule II through V, dispensed in North Carolina are reported to the CSRS database. Pharmacies transmit the data weekly. Prescribers and pharmacists register and are then granted a password to access the system online to look up a patient's controlled substances prescription history.
