Perhaps, you’ve heard about guidelines for prescribing opioids by the CDC and wondered what they are about. Well, people have used opioids for pain management for many years. However, some people have developed an opioid addiction after using these drugs to manage chronic pain. That’s why the CDC came up with the guidelines for their use.
