Opioid Resources for Essential Hospitals

In recent years, the opioid epidemic has become a major public health concern across the country. In 2017, it was declared a public health emergency, allowing federal health agencies to allocate resources and hire specialists to focus on the issue. In addition, the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis has been established to study best practices in combating this epidemic.

Essential hospitals play a key role in the prevention and intervention of this widespread problem.
