Reduce number of opioids prescribed & increase Rx monitoring
Many of you know someone who has suffered from the wave of heroin and opioid addiction that is making its way through Iowa. This issue is very personal to me. To the thousands of Iowans impacted by addiction, I've been there; I understand your struggles.
In the past decade, opioid-related deaths have more than doubled, and will continue to rise unless we take action to reverse this heart-wrenching trend. My plan to address this epidemic includes, increase use of the Prescription Monitoring
Program, supporting enhanced intervention for Iowans addicted to opioids, and expanding medicated assisted treatment.
And today I am calling on the legislature to pass legislation to reduce the number of opioids prescribed in Iowa. This is a big step in the right direction. It will change lives and provide opportunities for a brighter future.
