The Growing Crisis and Championing Change

Opioid Epidemic

Our industry stands at a pivotal moment – one unrelated to national elections or payment models or new competitors. Opioid abuse has swept across the country, flooding hospitals and health systems emergency departments with those suffering from addiction and the effects of overdose. Patients, communities, and provider organizations are experiencing devastating consequences of the opioid epidemic on a daily basis.

Alliance Interventional’s physicians and executives have built a comprehensive and proactive opioid response strategy that we implement daily in our national network of pain management clinics and ambulatory surgical centers. We have invested in helping our clinicians understand when to prescribe opioids and how to do it safely.

Philosophically, our pain management centers promote minimally invasive procedures and complementary therapies, which are sometimes combined with conservative dispensing of pain medications. Our intent is to offer our best practices and data-driven framework to support all medical professionals to successfully deploy opioid response measures.

Together We Are Driving Solutions

Over the past two decades, the misuse and abuse of opioids have gradually grown to crisis proportions; in addition to devastating impacts to patients and their families, opioid abuse effects every payer, every state, and every provider. Alliance Interventional understands that, ultimately, no single stakeholder can solve the opioid epidemic alone. In addition to influencing federal and state government policy, we also host an annual Medical Summit which brings together the most innovative providers and key opinion leaders in the pain management industry. Our continual goal is to support comprehensive pain management programs incorporating a variety of non-opioid modalities, as well as engage with communities and local, state and national efforts to develop and implement addiction prevention strategies.

Supporting Our Community

Beyond supporting clinicians: Alliance Radiology, Alliance Oncology and Alliance Interventional empower our patients with education, resources, and accountability mechanisms to achieve safe opioid-use behaviors.
