The mission of the OPDA is to reduce the harm of long-term opiate use
The OPDA is the only body bringing together pain and addiction professionals and patient groups to raise awareness and understanding of opioid painkiller dependence and to campaign for dedicated services.
OPD is a highly distressing medical need requiring early diagnosis and appropriate treatment. The impact of OPD can be felt both by patients and their families and is associated with stigma and guilt.
The Opioid Painkiller Dependence Alliance is a unique collaboration of pain and addiction specialists and patient groups committed to raising awareness of opioid painkiller problems and campaigning for dedicated services. Become an affiliate member and make our voice stronger.
