Opioid Misuse

Misuse of prescription opioids in the United States has created what is now considered a national emergency. A survey of 700 WU PAARC parents or caregivers was conducted to assess the availability of prescription opioid pain medications in the homes of adolescents in the community. We hope to use what we learned from this survey to develop an intervention that addresses the opioid crisis.
