“The Opioid Crisis is not just a national crisis, it is a Springfield crisis. And we Doctors need to be part of the solution. We need to follow CDC guidelines, and take a critical look at every single prescription that is written. The danger is not only the number of deaths as a result of overdosing on opioids; the danger is diversion. For when large numbers of prescriptions are written, there is the chance that those opioids are being diverted and sold on the street or used for another purpose.”
