The non-medical use of prescription opioids (i.e., medications not used as prescribed or by people to whom they were not prescribed) is a major public health problem in the United States. Inappropriate use of opioids leads to death and disease, as well as increased family instability, risk of violence, legal problems, unemployment, financial hardship, and decreased social support. Large epidemiological studies of nationally representative samples indicate that, from 1991 to 2013, the prevalence of non-medical use of prescription opioids increased almost three-fold, from 1.5 to 4.1 percent, and the prevalence of addiction to prescription opioids tripled, from 0.3 to 0.9 percent.

This presentation has two interrelated parts. The first part will offer an overview of the prevalence, comorbidity patterns and risk factors for non-medical use of opioids and for opioid use disorder. The second part will focus on treatment of opioid use disorder, with a focus on pharmacological treatment. Read more here.
