Addiction epidemiology has been an active area of mathematical research in recent years. However, the social and mental processes involved in substance use disorders versus contraction of a pathogenic disease have presented challenges to advancing the epidemiological theory of substance abuse, especially within the context of the opioids where both...

Opioid addiction has become a global epidemic and a national health crisis in recent years, with the number of opioid overdose fatalities steadily increasing since the 1990s. In contrast to the dynamics of a typical illicit drug or disease epidemic, opioid addiction has its roots in legal, prescription medication—a fact which greatly increases the...
