In March 2008, DDCN was founded by a pharmacist due to his concern for the extent and magnitude of the prescription drug diversion market and his evaluation of the inability of both state and federal law enforcement agencies to properly monitor and regulate the illegal prescription drug diversion market. DDCN has been very effective in identifying and isolating those individuals who are seeking prescription controlled substances from multiple physicians. Through our direct efforts, we have uncovered a major prescription forgery ring, subsequently reporting this information to the DEA for prosecution. Even though currently 'doctor hopping' is not illegal in the State of Texas, the DDCN treats it as illegal. When we identify an individual as a 'doctor hopper', the prescription(s) are confiscated and cancelled. All physician members of the DDCN adhere to this policy. These 'doctor hoppers' can no longer fill any controlled substance prescriptions at affiliated DDCN pharmacies nor seek controlled substance prescriptions from affiliated DDCN physicians. A positive fallout of this policy, has resulted in some individuals returning to the pharmacies from which they had originally been banned, subsequently seeking advice regarding rehabilitation services to treat their drug dependence or addictions.
