DENVER -- Opioid use is at an all time high, but research being done in Colorado could limit the number people who are prescribed opioids or who are given opioids in a health care setting.

On this weekend's Politics Unplugged, Joshua Ewing of the Colorado Hospital Association sits down with Blair Miller to discuss efforts underway to end the epidemic.

Politics Unplugged airs Sundays at 4:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Denver7 and at noon on K3-KCDO.
