The North Carolina Controlled Substance Reporting System (CSRS) was established by North Carolina law to improve the state’s ability to track prescribing and dispensing patterns of controlled substances in North Carolina. The tracking of controlled substance prescribing and dispensing is part of a larger effort to curb the abuse and misuse of prescription drugs by North Carolinians. This training program introduces you to the CSRS.
