The purpose of this course is to review the psychological aspects of addiction, understand who is at risk, and the legal ramifications of providing inappropriate opioid prescriptions. We will review both the new national guidelines (CDC) as well as the state (NC Medical Board) regarding opioid prescribing. We hope to accomplish a more thoughtful algorithm for opioid prescribing with consideration of long-term treatment and unwanted adverse effects. This course will be directed at all medical providers with special emphasis on primary care as the primary care provider prescribes roughly 50% of all opioid prescriptions.


  • Discuss decision-making strategies when considering opioid, non-opioid pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic strategies for management of chronic pain.
  • Identify risk factors associated with the initiation or maintenance of chronic opioid therapy to promote appropriate and safe opioid usage in patients.
  • Discuss the importance of psychological evaluation and treatment for patient’s being evaluated for chronic opioid management.
