NEW! Opioid misuse prevention module

Dr. Sion Harris, core partner of the AYAH-RN, developed website teaching materials to engage parents in helping prevent opioid abuse. Specifically, this work builds on existing parent education website materials developed by Boston Children’s Hospital/Howard University that address other substance abuse issues. The new module will provide parents with the latest science on opioids and their effects and risks (particularly for the developing adolescent brain), abuse warning signs, tips for prevention of misuse, and links to additional information resources.
