Prescription drug misuse can have serious medical consequences. According to the NIH, Increases in prescription drug misuse over the last 15 years are reflected in increased emergency room visits, overdose deaths associated with prescription drugs, and treatment admissions for prescription drug use disorders, the most severe form of which is addiction. Among those who reported past-year nonmedical use of a prescription drug, nearly 12 percent met criteria for prescription drug use disorder. Unintentional overdose deaths involving opioid pain relievers have more than quadrupled since 1999 and have outnumbered those involving heroin and cocaine since 2002. This 9-part program will cover proper use of opioids and benzodiazepines as well as using and interpreting the PDMP and will examine the FDA’s methodology for human abuse liability.
