From 1999 to 2015, more than 183 000 people died from overdoses related to prescription opioids and in 2012, more than 250 million opioid prescriptions were written in the USA, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than enough for the entire population of 319 million people.
The over-prescription of opioids for chronic, non-cancer pain outside palliative care is driving the epidemic of opioid dependency in the USA, according to Dr. Debra Houry, Director of the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.
With increasing awareness of the current opioid epidemic, patients are in search of alternatives to pain management beyond increasing their regular opioid prescriptions.
