Opioid abuse, like other health issues, has special considerations for women. Though men are more likely to misuse opioids and die from opioid overdose, research suggests women face unique challenges related to chronic pain, trauma, pregnancy and motherhood. This presentation will survey the opioid epidemic from a historical, pharmacological, behavioral health, and public health, with special attention to women’s issues.
