Only 25% of physicians feel very confident in managing patients on opioids.
When many of today’s physicians were in medical school, they learned that opioids were safe, and no dose seemed too high. Now, evidence-based practice paints a far more nuanced picture. More than 200 million prescriptions a year have contributed to widespread problems:
- 33% of young adults say that prescription opioids are “easy to get,” with many taking their friends’ or parents’ pills.
- Nearly 20% of U.S. veterans with PTSD are receiving higher-dose or multiple opioids, or early refills.
- Increased prescribing to women of childbearing age has contributed to a 4-fold increase in neonatal abstinence syndrome
