Drug diversion is a concept involving the transfer of prescribed controlled substances from the intended person to someone that was not prescribed the drugs for illicit use. This type of drug abuse is a growing problem.
The Morehead City Police Department Pill Diversion Program facilitates communication between law enforcement, care providers, and pharmacies to identify substance abusers and work towards lessening these problems. Often people addicted to and/or abusing prescription drugs can be "diverted" from the criminal justice system and can receive assistance through education and rehabilitation.
