Every day, more than 128 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl is a serious national crisis. In California there were over 2,400 opioid overdose deaths in 2018, a 5 percent increase from the prior year, including over 780 deaths from fentanyl, a 72 percent increase.
Hospitalization is a “reachable moment” for many people with opioid use disorder (OUD). To accelerate hospital progress in building systems to treat hospitalized patients with OUD and train health care professionals in opioid safety practices, Cal Hospital Compare supports the California Opioid Care Honor Roll Program. The goal of the program is increased access to addiction treatment for hospitalized patients and reduction of opioid-related deaths.
