A Shared Burden
The Military and Civilian Consequences of Army Pain Management Since 2001Website or Online Data - 2015
The Army has an opioid drug problem that is not going away under current person¬nel policies and medical practices. The survey results recorded here indicate that senior officers attending the U.S. Army War College recognize that the opioid prob¬lem is distinct in nature and origin from those of recreational drug abuse. The majority of these future Army leaders see misuse originating out of prescribing practices, a lack of medical monitoring, and a lack of soldier training and education on the dangers of opioids, rather than from undisciplined soldiers.
