Prescribing Guidelines


The Arizona Opioid Prescribing Guidelines are a voluntary, consensus set of guidelines that promote best practices for prescribing opioids for acute and chronic pain. They are intended to reduce the inappropriate use of controlled substances, improve safety, and reduce harm while preserving the vital roles of clinicians and patients in the management of acute and chronic pain. They are intended for use by clinicians in primary care and specialty outpatient settings who manage acute and chronic pain that is not occurring at the end of life and not due to malignancy.
