We have high opioid use where I live. At our hospital we use Toradol a lot, and muscle relaxers like Robaxin to help with post op pain. Other forms of pain relief like ketamine drips would be very helpful as well I feel. Some times it is hard to get people to try something other than the narcotics, because they already have it in their head that its not going to help. Explaining how different meds work on different pain receptors sometimes helps.
