Safe Opioid Prescribing

The rise of prescription opioid abuse and opioid-related deaths continues at an alarming rate. In 2017, in response to this devastating epidemic and its impact on our community, CDPHP® launched an opioid initiative with the following goals:

  • Provide affordable, accessible, and appropriate pain care

  • Prevent new users from becoming chronic users

  • Work with chronic/high-dose users to decrease dose and/or discontinue

  • Educate providers, members, and employees of CDPHP

  • Reduce diversion of prescription medications (transferring a drug from the individual prescribed to another individual)

  • Support members who need substance use treatment
