Stressing security, a Cordant Health Solutions pharmacy in Indianapolis does not list it's address.

To get in one must pass a security guard and keypad locked door.

Couriers hand deliver controlled substances to the patient or their proxy.



"The pharmacy also offers its own prescription take back program to help prevent abuse or medications falling into the wrong hands."  Took a phone call to find out that they supply doctors with prepaid mailers to give to their patients.

Possibly all done in response to a rash of Indiana pharmacy robberies.
