Our programs for professionals are interactive presentations around topics such as; what school professionals need to know about substance misuse and work - life balance. 

Tackling Opioids through Prevention for Athletes (TOP)

 

“Young adults who participate in athletics may be at greater risk to engage in nonmedical prescription opioid use because of their greater risk of injury or because of a greater opportunity to receive diverted opioid medications from teammates."   Journal of Adolescent Health, 2013

This toolkit provides key information to school administrators and communities to support best practices for student athletes in an effort to reduce the use and misuse of prescription opioids among this high risk population.
