Abstract : In the United States, chronic pain is more prevalent among active duty (AD) military service members (44%) than civilians (26%). Assessing factors associated withacute versus 3 long-term opioid use patterns (episodic, long-term low dose [LTLD], long-termhjgh dose [LTHD]) may facilitate opioid risk mitigation. We predicted differences insystem-level, clinical and opioid characteristics among opioid use patterns.
