We’re adding even more tools to fight the growing opioid abuse epidemic.
The need is clear, and the time is now. As the U.S. opioid abuse crisis grows worse, we’re adding new programs and redoubling our efforts around education, proper medication disposal, utilization management, increased access to naloxone, and ongoing advocacy for legislative solutions.
Our entire company is getting involved.
In addition to our ongoing opioid abuse prevention efforts, we are enhancing our enterprise initiatives to address prescription opioid misuse and abuse that will be supported by all parts of the company, including our CVS Pharmacy retail presence in nearly 10,000 communities across the country and CVS Caremark, our PBM that manages medications for more than 90 million plan members. We plan to reach patients, providers, payors, advocacy organizations, elected leaders and community health advocates.
Learn about the enhanced strategies we’re employing across our company to prevent opioid abuse and to mitigate the devastating effects of this epidemic on communities across our country.
Building on Longstanding Programs
We’re building on our ongoing efforts to prevent and address opioid abuse, increase access to opioid overdose medications, and our advocacy to promote tools that help pharmacies and prescribers prevent abuse. Learn more about our opioid abuse prevention strategies.
