The opioid epidemic is a major health crisis that the United States faces today. Despite the various health, economic, and social burdens that are associated with addiction, our society is still struggling to find effective methods to avoid addiction while treating patients and to also eliminate these burdens. Because of the complexity of the epidemic, the primary objective of this symposium is to learn more about how both opioid research and policy and community initiatives can be used to fight this crisis.
