BY CLINTON MCGUE – Blue Shield of California today released the second year results of its Narcotic Safety Initiative, a three-year program to help its members avoid opioid abuse and addiction. During the program’s first two years, we’ve seen significant reduction in opioid use among Blue Shield members with non-cancer pain. In fact, the overall consumption of opioids has fallen by 32 percent.
