Between 1997 and 2007 the use of prescription opioids more than quadrupled. Similarly, drug overdose deaths significantly increased for the 11th consecutive year in 2010. Although emergency physicians manage 28% of all acute care visits in the United States, only 5% of all opioid prescriptions are written by emergency physicians.
