ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Governor Hogan announced a decline in opioid prescriptions.
Hogan said prescriptions are down 22 percent since 2017.
The report said nearly 20 percent fewer patients received opioids.
The Hogan Administration committed more than $1 billion to combat the opioid epidemic.
Hogan said the decrease is partly because of the tracking system known as the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.
