Prescription Drug Usage by Patients

OPIOIDS

Each year, over 70 million patients receive opioids after surgery. One in 15 will go on long-term use of these medications, which ultimately puts them at risk for addiction. It is important for healthcare professionals to educate their patients on the medications they prescribe to them so that they can use with caution.
