Opioid Withdrawal: What We Need to Know

Patient notification of the risks of opioids has been a cornerstone of the PDFNJ message for the past decade - through public information campaigns and legislation that we have authored and advocated for that can help save lives. It is viral that patients and parents of patients are informed of risks for dependency and addiction from prescribed opioids. Patients need to be told about the signs and symptoms of dependency and addiction as well.

The TED talk by Travis Rieder, "The agony of opioid withdrawal -- and what doctors should tell patients about it" is a great resource and I recommend you watch.
