    Default Can Protective Services Require a Pill Count

    If a parent receives prescription medication that is a popular medication for abuse, and they are involved in a protective proceeding, can they be required to allow protective services to do a pill count to verify that they are not overusing or abusing their medication?

    Default Re: Can Protective Services Require a Pill Count

    If there is no court order, they can ask if you'll cooperate with a pill count, and they can take your cooperation (or lack thereof) into consideration when deciding whether to open a protective proceeding or, if one is already active, seek a court order.

    If the court has ordered pill counts, they may require pill counts consistent with the court's order.
