Use of opioids such as heroin, morphine, and prescription pain relievers has expanded to levels of dependency in many individuals. Several factors contribute to the breadth and complexity of this urgent problem: severe chronic pain, greater use of prescriptions, aggressive marketing by pharmaceutical companies, among others. Updates about treatment, services, solutions, and resources exist here in Hawaii to reduce harm and improve quality of life for all.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review approved medications to treat opioid use disorder.
2. Discuss opioid intervention and updates about management of opioid use disorder.
3. Summarize referral resources and services are available for opioid-dependent clients in Hawaii and how to assist in the coordination of care.
