New And Existing Vertical Vet Members Can Now Access TITAN’s Suite of Security And Compliance Services At Exclusive “Members-Only” Rates




NEW YORK, NY – September 12, 2018: TITAN Group and Vertical Vet are pleased to announce a strategic partnership whereby TITAN’s DEA controlled substances compliance solutions are now available to new and existing Vertical Vet members. The Vertical Vet/TITAN partnership seeks to help veterinary practices of all sizes, operate more efficiently and securely through exclusive access to TITAN’s suite of services designed to reduce risk, remediate issues and educate personnel on how to prepare for DEA audits and inspections as well as prevent and detect internal and external drug diversion activity.

“Our goal is to provide the veterinary industry with proactive controlled substances compliance solutions that are easy to implement and sustain long-term,” notes TITAN Founder and CEO, Jack Teitelman.

With over three decades of experience in DEA compliance, state regulatory compliance and drug-related criminal investigations, TITAN’s team of experts are trained to help practices reduce risk and shine a light on vulnerabilities. TITAN’s compliance solutions have been implemented into numerous healthcare facilities; ranging from private practices and large medical centers to pharmacies and supply chain distribution.

“Every veterinary practice handling controlled substances is at risk for non-compliance,” says TITAN Founder and CEO, Jack Teitelman. “Inadequate security and failure to prevent drug diversion can cost a practice in lost inventory, damage to reputation, and potential physical harm to staff and patients. In the current world of widespread opioid abuse, both internal and external drug diversion threats are continuing to increase. Sadly, many unsuspecting practices remain in the dark until their drugs are stolen or missing.”
