Review of States' Oversight of Opioids
Opioid abuse and overdose deaths are at crisis levels in the United States, with more than 42,000 Americans dying from opioid use in 2016. We will analyze data from 2013 to 2016 on opioid overdose trends from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in order to select multiple States for review. We will review the oversight of opioid prescribing and monitoring of opioid use in the selected States. Specifically, we will review policies and procedures, data analytics, programs, outreach, and other efforts. To support HHS's ongoing efforts to identify and disseminate effective practices to address the opioid epidemic in the United States, we will highlight these state-wide efforts.
