    • Overview

      The world has dealt with opioids in some way, shape, or form for centuries and will continue to do so for centuries to come. However, many mistakenly consider the recent opioid crisis to be the only incident of its kind in history.

      The first wave of the current opioid crisis observationally involved prescription opioids (whether attained via prescription or illicitly), the second wave involved heroin, and the third wave involves fentanyl and its analogs. Along the way, there are numerous other “natural” and “synthetic” opioid substances that ebb and flow in popularity across the globe. Healthcare professionals should be able to identify any and all opioid substances, while also taking those substances into consideration during clinical conversations when reviewing for therapeutic considerations, such as drug interactions. Join Dr. Mark Garofoli for a dynamic discussion of the most sensationalized substances on our planet: opioids.
