The book begins with a public health/epidemiologic examination of the situation, with a systematic view of the problem based on classic (infectious disease) epidemiologic principles applied to this behavioral health issue. This application is expanded to take into account the fact that unlike most epidemics in our species' history, a unique factor that must be accounted for in any public health analysis is that the host (opioid-dependent/misusing patient) is generally not under sufficiently strong motivation to avoid the disease. The introduction concludes with a survey of recent containment approaches, categorized epidemiologically by target (agent, vector, host.) The remainder of the book is organized according to this framework, addressing agent, vector/transmission and host, respectively. Sections Three and Four comprise the major focus of the book, and are dedicated primarily to practical education for primary care providers in preventing opioid use disorder, and overcoming it after the fact.
"The book is intended for all healthcare professionals, specifically prescribers including physicians, nurse practitioners, advanced practice nurses, and residents who treat patients with acute and chronic pain. It is also appropriate for nonprescribers and trainees in healthcare settings managing these patient populations. ... This book covers the increasingly problematic opiate abuse problem from an epidemiological perspective." (Michael Easton, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2018) "This is quite of an intro into mind puzzling theme as opioid dependence which caught attention of all medical professionals prescribing opioid medications. ... I would like to conclude that authors gave great insight into scientific views of opioid dependence and medication assisted therapy but emphasized that it requires much more than this for accomplishing recovery from opioid dependence." (Marijana Batkovic, Alcoholism and Psychiatry Research, Vol. 53 (2). 2017)
