Home > Prescribe Safe
The Prescribe Safe initiative was created by Monterey County law enforcement, administration of the four Monterey County hospitals, and local physicians in response to concerns about prescription medication misuse in our county. Prescribe Safe is meant to guide, educate, and provide resources for our local physicians and patients in the safe use of prescription medications and promote safe and effective pain management in Monterey County.
For questions regarding the Prescribe Safe initiative, please contact the team of practitioners at firstname.lastname@example.org.
