Drug Diversion Unit logo

The purpose of the Drug Diversion Unit is to reduce the pharmaceutical drug diversion problem throughout the Commonwealth through enforcement, education and prevention. The Drug Diversion Unit (DDU) came into existence as a result of a federal grant to focus on the diversion of legitimate pharmaceuticals for illicit purposes. Drug diversion continues to be an exponentially severe problem in Virginia. Consistent with trends across the country, in Virginia the current demand for diverted pharmaceuticals eclipses the demand for all other illicit drugs combined.

Diversion Alert Fax System (DAFS)

Diversion Alert!

The Department of State Police has in existence a Diversion Alert Fax System (DAFS) which is designed to provide the pharmaceutical community with critical information needed to aid in the prevention of diversion activities. 

If a practitioner discovers a prescription pad stolen, alterations to his/her prescriptions and/or the illegal use of a name or DEA number in order to obtain false telephone prescriptions, the practitioner should contact the State Police, Drug Diversion Unit (DDU).  Pharmacists can also provide similar information which will be verified before its inclusion in the system.  DDU, through DAFS, will send a single page computer generated alert containing the critical information to all fax equipped pharmacies within the practitioner’s county/city and surrounding jurisdictions. 

DAFS is an additional tool that we can all utilize to help eliminate the unnecessary diversion of pharmaceutical drugs into our communities. The system will only be successful if you provide the appropriate information to the Virginia State Police for dissemination. 

Diversion Alert Fax System Enrollment Form

The contact person is:

Drug Diversion Analyst
8am - 4:30pm, Monday through Friday

Other times: Please call Virginia Drug Hot Line 1-800-553-DOPE (3673)
