Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Due to a combination of unique circumstances, opioid use and misuse in the United States have escalated dramatically over the past 15 years, resulting in a national crisis.

METHOD:

To bring together work that addresses the role that psychologists can play in responding to this crisis, we assembled this special issue.

RESULTS:

The papers included in this issue underscore critical matters for continued consideration, and point to directions for further action and investigation.

CONCLUSIONS:

Themes that emerged from this collection of papers suggest numerous opportunities for the field as we seek to respond collectively to the crisis now facing our country. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved).
