ROCKVILLE, MD. February 10, 2020: Dr. John Rosa, dynamic speaker, and national opioid crises expert posted a new article on his website entitled, "More Medical Educators And Researchers Explore Alternatives To Opioids For Pain," in which Dr. Rosa offers a look at the positive strides being made.
According to Dr. Rosa, "a greater number of medical educators and researchers are increasingly exploring nonpharmacological treatments for pain. The trend seems to be growing in medical colleges across the country in response to the growing opioid crisis." He further elaborates, "More and more attention is being given to Integrative Medicine which involves instruction in how to care for patients suffering from chronic pain with reductions in or without the use of opioids."
"Health institutions across the board are joining in on the effort to help curtail and put an end to the opioid addiction in this country," writes Dr. Rosa. "For instance," he says, "in 2018, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched a cross-divisional effort called the Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Initiative."
