CDC Prescribing Guidelines

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Opioid Guidelines
Released in March 2016, the CDC’s opioid prescribing guidelines can help providers make informed decisions about pain treatment in primary care settings. The site has a wealth of research, infographics, and trainings to encourage providers to implement best practices for responsible prescribing through education on non-opioid pain treatment therapies, proper dosage, and tapering and addictions screening.
