Controls Over Opioid Treatment Programs

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration funds State agencies' opioid treatment programs through its Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant program. Opioid abuse is a compelling public health concern, and in the past OIG has recommended better security protocols to reduce thefts of opioids from hospitals and pharmacies. We will determine whether a State agency is effectively monitoring its opioid treatment programs' services and medications in accordance with the federal guidelines for opioid treatment programs established under 42 CFR Part 8. We will also determine whether program expenditures are allowable in accordance with Federal requirements outlined in 45 CFR Part 75, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for HHS Awards.
