Join IHPI and the Division of Pain Research (Department of Anesthesiology) to battle the very frightening but real trend of prescription drug abuse in teens.
In Washtenaw County alone, unintentional or undetermined opioid pain reliever overdoses more than doubled from 2014 to 2015 for residents 21 or younger. Behind marijuana, prescription drugs are the second most abused substance among teens today. Many teens mistakenly view prescriptions as a medically safe way to get high. Prescription pain relievers, such as OxyContin and Vicodin, are most commonly abused and teens can get these easily from their homes. Help us keep our teens and children safe.
