The Voices for Non-Opioid Choices Coalition (“Voices”) continues the fight to combat the nation’s opioid crisis and provide opportunities to get involved with advocacy at the federal, state, and local level.

Our Policy Priorities

Patients must be educated and informed about all available, safe, and effective options to treat acute pain

Federal payment policy must reflect a commitment to patient-centered care that takes into account the ongoing opioid crisis

Health care providers must be trained in the unique needs of patients seeking treatment for acute pain, including postsurgical pain, and the wide range of options available to them

Policymakers must continue to seek solutions to the opioid crisis that support the full range of treatment options necessary for patients in pain
