Opioid Use Disorder
Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) is a physical and psychological reliance on opioids, a substance found in certain prescription pain medications. In the midst of a national opioid epidemic filled with misguided labels and information, the Dumke College of Health Professions seeks to provide our faculty, staff and students to easy and accessible resources dedicated to evidence-based education, solutions and outreach.
