Recorded Webinar - Preventing The Non-Medical Use Of Prescription Drugs In New England
Presented by Sandra Del Sesto, M.Ed., ACPS with Megan Hawkes and Kim Magoon, Public Consulting Group
Course Summary: Increases in the non-medical use of prescription drugs (NMUPD) and opioid misuse overall, have many New England communities increasingly focusing on these problems as a prevention priority. In order to address these problems, prevention practitioners must understand the factors that contribute to the problems and the strategies that have been effective in addressing those factors.
This webinar will look at where to go to learn about risk and protective factors associated with prescription drug misuse, provide an overview of evidence-based strategies that address these factors, and begin to explore opportunities for forging the new partnerships needed to implement these strategies in New England.
