Opioid Abuse Prevention: Web-Based Module for Parents

Parent-focused educational materials to prevent opioid abuse (S. Harris, PhD, BCH/HU)

With support from the AYAH-RN, Dr. Sion Harris at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard University (BCH/HU) led a project to create on-line teaching materials to engage parents in helping prevent opioid abuse. The project built on existing parent education website materials developed by BCH/HU that address other substance abuse issues. The module provides 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.
