We do need to provide compassionate care to
those with certain painful conditions
We don’t want to throw the baby
out with the bathwater
Opioids have a role to play
 In the treatment of acute and
post surgical pain
 In cancer and other
deteriorating painful
conditions
 In some chronic conditions,
when utilized at safe doses
The prescription drug crisis is
the result of prescriptions!
