Recognizing and Stratifying Patients at Risk for Opioid Addiction

Robert Smith, DPM, MSc, RPh

When used correctly under a health care provider's direction, prescription pain medicines are helpful. However, misusing prescription opioids risks dependence and addiction. While a history of substance use disorder, certain mental health diagnoses, and concomitant prescription of certain psychiatric medications appeared useful for identifying patients at higher risk, few quality studies were available and no symptoms, signs, or screening tools were particularly useful for identifying those at lower risk. This 30-minute program will present methods and strategies by way of examples to recognize and stratifying patients at risk for opioid use disorder and opioid addiction.
