|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.”
