"Prescription Opioid Abuse Among Disabled Adults."














On Wednesday, July 13, 2016, 8-9 am Pacific Standard Time, Dr. James Gude, Clinical Professor at UCSF, will speak on "Prescription Opioid Abuse Among Disabled Adults." Many adults are disabled due to chronic pain. One of the options they have to relieve or lessen their pain is prescribed pain relievers. Over time many build up a tolerance to the prescribed dose.
An opiate is a substance derived from the poppy plant such as morphine. An opioid is a substance that is synthetic(fully or partially) and manufactured via chemical synthesis such as fentanyl. On the streets, these terms are often used interchangeably describing all opium-like substances.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse(NIDA), prescription drug abuse is the use of a medication without a prescription, in a way other than as prescribed, or for the experience or feelings elicited.
