United States Surgeon General Launches: Turn the Tide Rx
The office of the United States Surgeon General has launched a campaign to provide education and information on combating the opioid crisis in America. The campaign coincides with a tour by U.S. Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy and offers a new website (www.turnthetiderx.org) that features guidelines, treatment options
and other useful tools for safely prescribing and managing the use of opioid medications.
The website offers a section where physicians can submit a pledge to adhere to prescription guidelines and treat addiction as a chronic illness, not a moral failing. The MOA strongly encourages all doctors to take the quick and meaningful pledge to help fight the opioid problem in America.
