Effectively controlling the diversion
of controlled substances ...
The Texas Department of Public Safety’s Controlled Substances Registration Program (CSR) is responsible for registering all persons or institutions that manufacture, distribute, analyze or dispense controlled substances in Texas. Registrants include practitioners (medical doctors, dentists, veterinarians, podiatrists and therapeutic optometrists), mid-level practitioners (advanced practice nurses and physicians’ assistants), pharmacies, hospitals, manufacturers, researchers, teaching institutions, distributors and analysts. The purpose of registering these individuals and institutions is to more effectively control the diversion of controlled substances from legitimate channels and to promote public health and welfare by controlling illegal drug trafficking.
