Addressing the Unique Challenges of Opioid Use Disorder in Women

Tuesday, January 17, at 1 p.m. ET

Drug overdose is the number one cause of injury death in the U.S. The amount of prescription opioids dispensed in the U.S. nearly quadrupled from 1999 to 2103. The recent increase in these overdose deaths are related to the misuse of opioids and heroin. Women are closing the death gap with men as their rates of opioid overdose deaths skyrocket.
