A video of patients and caregivers who have experienced addiction after a prescription for opioids. Produced by the National Safety Council, the video emphasizes that many patients and caregivers do not know the risks of opioids or understand that they have been prescribed a potentially addictive substance. The National Safety Council offers patients the option of putting a label on their insurance card asking to be warned when opioids are prescribed.
