About Us

Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing (PROP) is a non-profit organization comprised of healthcare professionals whose mission is to reduce opioid-related morbidity and mortality by promoting cautious and responsible prescribing practices. PROP works on three major fronts: prescriber education, consumer education, and advocacy:

Prescriber Education — Many prescribers underestimate risks of opioids, especially the risk of addiction, and overestimate effectiveness. PROP’s educational materials promote more cautious prescribing by providing clinicians with accurate, evidence-based information about opioid risks and benefits.

Consumer Education — PROP works with a variety of stakeholders to improve access to accurate information about prescription opioids.

Advocacy — PROP advocates for state and federal policies that promote more cautious prescribing practices. We also advocate for proper enforcement by FDA of the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, a law which prohibits marketing of drugs for conditions where risks of use are likely to outweigh benefits. We have appeared before Congress, pressed for changes in labeling, and continue to monitor opioid-related state and federal legislation and policies
