Carlisle Paper series

The Army has an opioid drug problem that is not going away under current personnel policies and medical practices. The survey results recorded here indicate that senior officers attending the U.S. Army War College recognize that the opioid problem is distinct in nature and origin from recreational drug abuse. The majority of these future Army leaders see misuse originating out of prescribing practices, a lack of medical monitoring, and a lack of soldier training and education on the dangers of opioids, rather than from undisciplined soldiers.

Audience

This paper will appeal to the medical teams, Army commanders, leadership and policy makers who hold authoritative decision-making with short- and long-term Army soldier health, monitoring prescription opioid pain medication use impacts on veterans' rehabilitation as they enter civilian society.  Civilian physicians, hospital nursing staffs, and medical teams that also prescribe opioid pain medications for rehabilitation may also have an interest in text.
