Take the pledge. Turn the tide on opioid addiction

The United States Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy will soon be dispatching a letter asking prescribers everywhere to take an online pledge to help curb the widespread abuse of opioid pain medications.

The clinician pledge is part of Dr. Murthy's Turn the Tide campaign to educate prescribers about the opioid epidemic and mobilize health care professionals to improve their prescribing practices. It complements what the ADA has been doing for several years to raise professional awareness about prescription opioid abuse and provide resources to help prevent it.

The Turn the Tide pledge is another small way to show how we, as a profession, are committed stemming the tide of opioid abuse that has been devastating our families and communities.
