Final CDC Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain

The CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain was published in March 2016. It provides recommendations about the appropriate prescribing of opioid pain relievers and other treatment options to improve pain management and patient safety.

Visit the CDC’s website for resources that will help improve communication between providers and patients about the risks and benefits of opioid therapy for chronic pain, improve the safety and effectiveness of pain treatment, and reduce the risks associated with long-term opioid therapy, including opioid use disorder, overdose, and death.
