The opioid epidemic and treatment is costing employers big. Consider these facts:

  • 99 percent of patients receive opioids after surgery
  • First lifetime exposure to opioids may be after surgery
  • 259 million prescriptions for opioids were written in 2012 – enough for one bottle for every American adult.

The Alliance tackled this topic head on with insights from multi-stakeholders offering their perspectives and ideas on how employers can help combat this issue.
