Opinion: Alternatives to opioids urgently needed for chronic pain

The Province published an op-ed about the crisis of doctor-prescribed opioids being increasingly used on a long-term basis.

Kate Smolina, a graduate of UBC’s school of population and public health, and Kim Rutherford, a clinical instructor at UBC’s department of family practice, wrote that B.C. must provide better support and therapy options for people who already use opioids on a regular basis.
