This program provides an historical introduction into opioid use. Included in this discussion is a review of the opioid paradigm prescription rates and overdoses statistics, as well as the attempted fix with Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) and Abuse-Deterrent Formulations (ADF's). The presenter analyzes federal and state prescribing guidelines, prosecution of those running "pill mills," PDMP programs and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) REMS, risk/benefit of opioids on the market and updates to laws for Naloxone. Participants will learn what to look for in prescription patterns and Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), as well as supply and demand.
