U.S. Public and Doctors'* Misperceptions Revealed in National Survey Demonstrate Urgent Need for Increased Opioid Dependence Awareness
Date:6/11/2013

ellow of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).  "What is eye-opening about the survey is the realization that the treatment community has contributed to perpetuating it; there is a desperate need for doctors who are willing to treat opioid dependence as they would other chronic diseases."

Relapse is Accepted as Inevitable
Two-thirds of adults (67%) and a similar proportion of doctors (65%) believe opioid dependence can be cured, and the vast majority of adults (92%) and doctors (98%) say the disease is treatable. Yet only about two-thirds of adults (35%) and nearly one-quarter of doctors (21%) agree a stay at a rehabilitation clinic is very effective, and more than half of adults (56%) and over two-thirds of doctors (69%) believe the vast majority of people living with opioid dependence will experience a relapse. 

Nearly three-quarters of adults (71%) and an even greater proportion of doctors (85%) agree people living with addiction do not seek help because they believe they can stop on their own.  However, the majority of adults (83%) and an even greater proportion of doctors (92%) agree people recovering from opioid dependence need a long-term combination of medication and behavioral changes to be successful with treatment.  Nearly three-in-five adults (58%) and even more doctors (73%) strongly support the use of prescription medication to treat opioid dependence. Yet only about four-in-ten adults (44%) are aware obtaining prescription medication from a doctor is a treatment option.

"The survey sheds light on barriers beyond the commonly perceived lack of patient recognition of the disease and motivation to seek treatment.  As a pioneer in office-based treatment for opioid dependence, Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals is committed to doing everything we can to raise awareness about this disease and help reduce the misperceptions, stigma and stereotypes surrounding it," said Rich
