Opioid Prescribing Guidelines

 

A workgroup of physicians, other medical providers, medical licensing officials and related organizations was created to develop opioid prescribing guidelines for Oklahoma practitioners. The guidelines are intended to help reduce the misuse of prescription opioids while preserving and supporting the vital role of medical providers to properly and appropriately treat pain.  Guidelines encourage judicious prescribing, patient education, referral to primary care and treatment for substance abuse when needed.
