The practice of dispensing any medication faces a certain amount of control and regulation, but when that medication is considered a "Controlled Substance" by the DEA, the control and regulation is taken to a whole new level. This module focuses on the intricacies of controlled substance laws and regulations as well as other practice nuances that will benefit any clinic considering dispensing these medications.
