Alcohol and Opioids - A Deadly Combination

Tuesday, 02/05/2019
3:30 PM
4:45 PM
Potomac Ballroom D


Alcohol use, including binge drinking, and alcohol-related emergency department visits are increasing in the United States, particularly among women and older drinkers. Alcohol by itself can lead to overdose deaths and contributes to harm from injuries and disease states. Alcohol combined with opioids significantly increases the risk of death. We will examine recent changes in alcohol consumption and then explore the harm caused by combining alcohol and opioids.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to understand recent changes in alcohol consumption trends, explore the harm caused by combining alcohol and opioids, and understand why women and older drinkers are visiting emergency rooms more often for alcohol-related problems.
