Helping People Become Opioid Aware

With 30 percent of Americans having been prescribed opioids and 1 in 5 who start a 10-day supply becoming longer-term users, we’re determined to make a difference. By building on our experience working with companies and their employees, we’re applying that knowledge to help reduce the use of opioids with a focus on prevention.

A 360-Degree Approach to Help Prevent Addiction

We see first-hand the devastating effects the opioid crisis has on the work force. Our comprehensive strategy leverages data to identify those who may be at risk of addiction. We offer them alternative pain management therapies and support so they can return safely to work.
 
We’re focusing our pharmacy approach to minimize excessive opioid prescriptions.
 
In states across the country, we’re advocating for reforms proven to work, including the adoption of robust drug formularies, mandatory physician and provider education, opioid prescription restrictions, and stronger drug monitoring programs.
