Collecting Resources to Help You in the Fight to Prevent Opioid Abuse and Misuse

The Allied Against Opioid Abuse (AAOA) Pharmacy Toolkit can help pharmacists engage in conversations with their patients and healthcare provider colleagues about prescription opioids. The resources will help pharmacists raise awareness among their patients about the rights, risks and responsibilities associated with prescription opioids and navigate difficult but important conversations to help prevent opioid abuse and misuse.

Allied Against Opioid Abuse is a national education and awareness initiative to help prevent the abuse and misuse of prescription opioids. The goal is to contribute to solving the opioid crisis in a meaningful way by educating patients about the rights, risks and responsibilities associated with prescription opioids.  

Mutual Drug partners included in AAOA are NCPA (National Community Pharmacists Association), HDA (Healthcare Distribution Alliance) and NASPA (National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations).  

Validate a DEA Number

To validate a DEA number as active, view the dispensed prescriptions for a patient and the doctors that wrote the prescriptions using the state controlled substances website, or to validate that a license to practice is valid, we have assembled a list of websites to help you answer these questions. Resources to check licenses, registrations, and controlled substances databases can be found in the table below.
