Opioids: See the following for Opioid prescribing in Illinois: https://www.dph.illinois.gov/. Did you know that how doctors prescribe opioids is monitored? A provider may be concerned that if an individual is abusing one drug, that it may increase the possibility that they are drug seeking for another- vice having a verified need. Take care.
