Background -- Prescription opioids impact on readiness -- Rehabilitation policies and community safety -- Rehabilitation can restore soldiers to productive lives -- Shifting Army policies on opioid-troubled soldiers -- Conclusion.
"The Army has an opioid drug problem that is not going away under current personnel policies and medical practices. The survey results recorded here indicate that senior officers attending the U.S. Army War College recognize that the opioid problem is distinct in nature and origin from those of recreational drug abuse. The majority of these future Army leaders see misuse originating out of prescribing practices, a lack of medical monitoring, and a lack of Soldier training and education on the dangers of opioids, rather than from undisciplined Soldiers"--Publisher's web site.
