Introduction: Professional efforts to promote evaluation of pain in conjunction with the marketing of sustained-release opioid analgesics for the treatment of chronic noncancer pain (CNCP) likely have contributed to increased rates of opioid abuse. From 1997 to 2002, there was a marked increase in the medical use of commonly prescribed opioids, including oxycodone (403%) . The abuse of prescription opioids has become widely prevalent . In the past decade, a more than a twofold increase in lifetime abuse and a nearly threefold increase in past-month abuse of prescription opioids occurred in the United States (https://nsduhweb.rti.org/). Hydrocodone has become the most widely prescribed opioid with the highest rate of nonmedical use in the general population .
