The abuse of opioids in the United States is a public health crisis – devastating the nation at rates that have never been seen before. Research finds that more than 70% of prescribed postoperative opioids go unused, which increases the potential for abuse, diversion and new chronic opioid use.* Preventative strategies by prescribers can make a difference.
