Army surgeon general: Opioid use has decreased among soldiers
from Defense News
Opioid use among active-duty soldiers dropped more than 3 percentage points from 2012 to 2016, according to the Army surgeon general, thanks in part to the Army's efforts to find alternate methods of pain management. "This addiction problem recognizes no distinction between those who wear the uniform and those who don't," said Lt. Gen. Nadja West, speaking at a family forum during the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual conference in Washington, D.C.
