Chronic pain is a complex problem that can have effects on our physical and mental well-being and affects one in three adults in the United States. Chronic Opioid Therapy (COT) is one tool that healthcare providers help patients manage their pain and refers to the daily use of opioids such as morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, etc. for managing chronic pain that lasts more than 3 months. It is typically used for conditions such as chronic back or neck pain, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, or cancer-related pain. These medications should always be initiated, monitored, and discontinued by a qualified healthcare professional due to the potential for addiction, dependence, and other adverse side effects associated with opioid use.
