Prevention of Opioid Abuse and Addiction

Prevention of Opioid Abuse and Addiction:

Why Is Prevention of Opioid Abuse and Addiction Important?

More than 100 people in the United States die every day due to an Opioid overdose. As the nation continues to combat the devastating effects of the Opioid Epidemic, people are beginning to focus efforts on the prevention of Opioid abuse and addiction. Physicians are learning more conservative prescribing practices and how to identify patients that are abusing medication, states have implemented prescription drug monitoring programs, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is now offering events around the country where people can learn about safe disposal of unused prescription medications. Researchers are also looking into other nonaddictive alternatives to Opioids for pain relief, including anesthetic injections and physical therapy.
