Opioid Use Disorder

Tim Westlake, MD, Emergency Medicine

We're facing a public health crisis as a result of the misuse of opioids. No one expects to become addicted to pain medication, but it is happening in growing numbers. State and local efforts to reduce and monitor pain prescriptions are one solution. Use of integrative behavioral health programs to treat people with substance abuse disorders is another. People can learn how to manage pain without narcotics. Help break the cycle of opioid use disorder. Call 211 to connect with local resources.
