Comprehensive Care: Harm Reduction and the Opioid Epidemic aims to delve deeper into the realities of opioid addiction and assess proposed prevention strategies by acknowledging the driving factors (biological, psychological, and social) and consequences of opioid abuse. Intervention strategies are offered from various access points ranging from the federal to individual level. The research conducted has shown that all access points must be considered for the success of prevention and treatment efforts. The intent of this paper is to argue that the proposed strategies are necessary steps to be taken if the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 3 (good health and wellbeing) and 10 (reduced inequalities) are to be accomplished.
