Barry County enters Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
June 13, 2018
The Barry County commissioners officially passed an ordinance entering into the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program last Thursday, June 7. The ordinance puts Barry County in partnership with St. Louis County, who runs the program. The move is to combat the growing opioid epidemic across the country.

The go-live date for the program is to be announced, but is anticipated within the next six months.
