Course Description: This course is intended to offer practical information and guidance to people with a broad range of backgrounds so that they can reference opioid-related information from Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health in one document. It provides the latest data on prevalence of substance use, opioid misuse, opioid use disorders, opioid overdoses, and related harms. This document sometimes discusses substance use disorders rather than opioid use disorder specifically. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combined with psychosocial therapies and community-based recovery supports is the gold standard for treating opioid addiction. There is strong scientific evidence that this combination of therapeutic interventions is life-saving and can enable people to recover to healthy lives. SAMHSA is joining forces with agencies across HHS and the federal government to increase access to these evidence-based interventions—especially in communities hardest hit by the opioid crisis. The hope is that all readers use this document to determine specific actions they can take to mitigate the opioid crisis.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Cite key research findings on demographics associated with opioid addiction.
  2. Summarize the impact of opioid addiction and the associated risks.
  3. Provide examples of interventions to improve the mitigation of opioid addiction.
