About this Conference:
“Prescriptions for opioids and benzodiazepines peaked in 2012. Since then, we have
shown a steady decline in prescriptions and morphine equivalents (MME). However, outcomes
have not declined. Neonatal abstinence has plateaued and overdose deaths continue
to rise. The Tennessee Department of Health will share data and future efforts, and
seek your stakeholder input.”
Mitchell Mutter, MD
