Approximate Length: 1 hour 43 minutes

Program Content: Professional drug seekers are becoming more prevalent in the United States. It is not uncommon for these illicit drug seekers to work between 30 and 50 practices per month. Their objective is to become accepted by a clinic and stay there for years while obtaining medications to sell on the street. These drug seekers use specific tactics to become accepted by medical practices. The Assessment for Potential Diversion (APD) is a two-part process that allows staff to identify illicit drug seekers during the new patient intake process.

This Presentation will:

  • Explain specific tactics used by illicit drug seekers to be accepted by clinics;
  • Explain the pre-consultation checklist (completed by staff) to identify professional drug seekers during new patient intake; and
  • Identify the consultation checklist (completed by the provider) to identify professional drug seekers during the consultation process.
