When used properly as prescribed, opioids can provide much needed relief during the healing and recovery process. Unfortunately, abuse or uninformed use of opioid medications can lead to addiction and have devastating effects.
Most of us are not well versed in talking with our health care providers about pain management. It is very common for patients to simply accept the recommendations of a doctor, but it’s important for every patient to ask questions when getting a new prescription.
Join CommonHealth to learn more about the impact Rx medications can have on our health. We will look at the effects on the youth population, adults and workplace exposure, the older population, proper disposal, as well as beneficial alternative treatment approaches to discuss with your health care provider. Rx Impact will be available beginning in May 2021.
