OPIOID EPIDEMIC

Introduction
The opioid epidemic emerged as a result of increased prescription of the opioid
medication. This was after pharmaceutical companies reassured people that the usage of the
drug as a pain reliever would not result in addiction. However, the outcome of the
reassurance was increased rates of prescriptions by healthcare providers. Afterwards, there
was a widespread misuse of both non-prescribed and prescribed opioids before people came
to the realisation that they were highly addictive (Kolodny et al, 2015). It forced the Health
and Human Services department to declare a public health emergency and announce
strategies of combating the opioid epidemic.
Socioeconomic status is a factor that influenced and continues to influence the opioid
epidemic. The opioid crisis is an indication of social and economic despair, which drives
people towards substance abuse and suicide as a form of a solution (Braveman et al, 2005).
These factors are common among people without a college degree since they experience
decreased economic opportunities.
At the same time, the safety net to help the struggling, as well as the family structures
that used to provide social stability, have declined. According to Braveman et al (2005), these
socioeconomic struggles, which do not discriminate gender, force people to seek quick ways
of solving such challenges. The opioid crisis is an example of the results of these
circumstances among people in the low socioeconomic status.
Due to the many deaths that result from the opioid epidemic, some strategies have
been put in place to control the crisis. The first one is to improve access to treatment and
recovery services through funding and the promotion of best practices and evidence-based
policies (Kolodny et al, 2015). Another strategy is the provision of the opioid overdose

especially those that could be lost to overdosing opioid prescriptions.
