    Journal of Opioid Management (JOM) is pleased to present a special issue, Abuse Deterrent Opioids: Clinical and Public Policy Implications focused on abuse deterrent (AD) opioids. This issue will provide a comprehensive roadmap for healthcare professionals prescribing opioids in the treatment of pain and the proper utilization of AD opioids in clinical practice.

    Over the past decade the use of opioid analgesics in the treatment of chronic pain has grown rapidly, however these analgesics have also been associated with an increase in accidental drug overdose deaths. Abuse deterrent formulations of opioid analgesics have been introduced as part of the solution to opioid abuse and the unintended consequence of the opioid death epidemic. Along with these new formulations come an important set of benefits and limitations that are critical to the proper application of ADOs.

    Our goal is to create an authoritative special issue of JOM that presents the latest research on the basic science, clinical application and public policy aspects of abuse deterrent formulations of opioids. This issue will address the most important issues opioid prescribers face while utilizing ADOs in their practice.
