ACL has authored a new issue briefing entitled “The Opioid Public Health Emergency and Older Adults.”  Opioid misuse and addiction have become a large, nation-wide issue. Opioid use disorder can affect people of all ages; racial, ethnic, sexual and gender minorities; income classes; and geographic areas.  Older adults are among the groups affected by this problem because they often use prescription opioids to cope with painful chronic conditions, such as arthritis, or procedures, such as surgery.    
The Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, is pleased to announce the theme for Older American’s Month 2017. The theme, Age Out Loud, is intended to give aging a new voice—one that reflects what today’s older adults have to say about aging.
