Overview:

In this video segment from Understanding the Opioid Epidemic, students will learn the historical context behind the current opioid epidemic. Prior to the mid-90s, when pharmaceutical companies began telling physicians that opioid pain relievers were safe, the use of opioids to treat pain was limited. Teachers have access to various support materials on this site about the opioid epidemic.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
