Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
To prevent prescription drug abuse and protect
the health and safety of our community, the
Pennsylvania Department of Health collects
information on all filled prescriptions for controlled
substances. Controlled substances are drugs that
have potential for abuse or dependence.
This information helps health care providers safely prescribe controlled
substances and helps patients get the treatment they need.

Vernon Hilyer of Clarion shares his "life sentence" Hilyer's 21-year-old son, Brandon, died after driving drunk in September 2008.
"My name is Vernon Hilyer aka: Brandon's Dad. I share a true life story about my son's fight with alcohol and the effects his choices had on everyone who knew and loved him. My son Brandon was an outstanding all-American kid that was full of life, but alcohol impaired his control and eventually robbed him of life. Now I serve a "Life Sentence" due to his drinking and driving. My Life Sentence is not one behind bars but a life full of sadness and emptiness. I share many things about his drinking world, both in high school and in college that most can relate to. My true-life story has had a life changing effect on many people. As you look through this site, think to yourself how this will impact your students. Working together we can save one more life."
