Drug addiction affects all Ohioans. Increased understanding of the appropriate use of opioids will benefit all Ohioans seeking the best possible medical treatment without facing the consequences of dependence or addiction.
Governor Kasich has tasked all state agencies to look for ways to address the problem of prescription drugs, and BWC is proud to do its part. Most recently, BWC collaborated with other organizations to develop fact sheets to help providers, employers and injured workers better understand the potential risks of opioid over usage.
The fact sheets are:
- Drug Addition Affects All Ohioans;
- If Opioids Have Not Relieved Your Chronic Pain;
- Is My Pain Medication Making Me Worse?
We invite you to review these new educational materials and share them with your colleagues, family and friends.
