Controlled Substances Program

The Controlled Substances Program (CSP) of the Division of Environmental Health, Department of Public Health & Social Services, is responsible for administering the Guam Uniform Controlled Substances Act (Act), Chapter 67, Title 9 GCA, relating to the manufacture, distribution, and dispensing of controlled substances. The Program has statutory responsibility to set standards for the control of prescribing, dispensing and administration of pharmaceuticals by health care providers as well as distribution of pharmaceuticals by health care facilities (e.g. hospitals, clinics, long-term care) and other entities (e.g. manufacturers and distributors). The mission of the Controlled Substances Program is to prevent and control the misuse, abuse, and diversion of pharmaceutical controlled substances on Guam through public education and regulating its manufacture, distribution, and dispensing. The CSP undertakes initiatives to promote effective security and accountability measures and to prevent theft, tampering, misuse and abuse of drugs by conducting inspections, investigations, and record audits to ensure that registrants are in compliance with the Act.
