The opioid epidemic — the rapid increase of the use of prescription and non-prescription drugs for nonmedical use – is ravaging many parts of the United States, resulting in drug overdose deaths emerging as the leading cause of injury death. Statistics from Health and Human Services on human and economic costs are staggering. Rural communities have been especially hard hit, causing not only an increase in overdose risk, but also dramatic increases in new infections with hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV. A recent report from Oregon o cials stated that one in four pregnancies in central Oregan are drug affected.

Yet, data from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholishm (NIAA) National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions-III show that few people with opioid use disorder receive treatment—only about 5% in the past year, and 17% ever receive help, which includes medication and behavioral counseling.

The goal of the CME Out tters Addiction Exchange is to improve recognition of the magnitude of the problem, as well as to provide strategies, resources for consumers and clinicians, and innovative approaches to meeting the challenges of opioid use disorder.
