All DEA-registered physicians must register with and consult CURES prior to prescribing Schedule II, III or IV controlled substances to a patient for the first time and at least once every four months thereafter if that substance remains part of the patient’s treatment. Physicians must also consult CURES no earlier than 24 hours, or the previous business day, before prescribing, ordering, administering or furnishing a controlled substance to the patient. Limited exemptions apply to these requirements. For questions or to request in-person CURES training, please email the CURES Help Desk or call 916-210-3187.
