Teens and Opiates – Identification and Prevention

October 25, 2018    2:15  -  3:30

Opioids and Opiates have become the nation’s leading cause of death for teens and young adults. We are in a crisis of epidemic proportions.

As providers and first responders, we have an opportunity to implement early-interventions that may save lives, as well as promote protective factors within our every day environments to minimize the prevalence of Opiate use among the next generations.

Come learn about indicators of use, ways to take action when there is a suspected risk, and ways to fight this crisis for the next generations of teens.
