Controlled Substance Safety Label CSSL Pharmacy Solution For Opioid Crisis

A Controlled Substance Safety Label (CSSL) is a solution designed to help reduce the risk of opioid misuse in your customer base.

These labels provide easy-to-understand audible and visual access to prescription drug information including SIGs, package inserts, med guides, and warnings. A CSSL helps ensure compliance and adherence for your customers who have difficulty understanding printed media, cannot read a printed label, or are overwhelmed by the amount of information that comes with a Schedule II medication.
