Opioids For Chronic Pain – Prescribing Guidelines + Indiana Resources

See Resource 1, CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, for lots of useful resources.

I found Resource 2 not helpful at all. I leave it in the list just to remind me not to read it again.

Resources 3 and 4 are for Indiana physicians.
