Opioids

Opioids are natural or synthetic substances used to reduce pain in clinical settings, but are also produced and consumed non-medically. Common opioids include oxycodone, hydromorphone and fentanyl. While they can be an effective part of pain management for some medically supervised patients, opioid-related harms such as addiction and overdose present a significant challenge for public health. This page contains documents and resources related to opioids.
