Honest question- what percentage of people who abuse opioids do so via their own prescription as opposed to obtaining the drug via illicit methods? The first person represents someone I could track with my company-specific data. The second person I probably could not.

It would be like trying to determine if an individual is having unnecessary services performed by a doctor that they pay under the table.

There is potential for this at the provider level (i.e. calling to the carpet providers who systematically prescribe more or stronger doses of opioids than are warranted), but I'm only scratching the surface of the problem.
