Our intent: Raise awareness of non-addictive pain management methods, support tighter opioid prescription protocols, and support research into non-addictive pain management drugs.
While awareness inside the medical community is rising regarding the risks associated with prescribing opioids for pain relief, there is much more to be done to get prescription opioids under control. Here we will gather information on efforts to better codify prescription guidelines, assess physician training and education efforts across the country, advance initiatives that provide better visibility into prescription drug databases in order to prevent systemic abuse, support exploration of more holistic pain management programs, and investigate what is being done to produce non-addictive pain killers. We also hope to highlight what is being done in each state regarding prescription drug management.
