About

Currently, 1 in 8 adolescents continue to receive prescription opioids a year or more after injury. By longitudinally surveying patients, we can identify risk factors and pathways to nonmedical opioid use. Furthermore, by assessing whether pain management and mental health treatment after injury moderates sustained opioid use and prescription opioid misuse, we can create targeted interventions to reduce future nonmedical opioid use in adolescents.

Full description

This is a prospective cohort study that will follow participants for 2 years and administer surveys to adolescents both traumatically injured and uninjured on prescription opioid usage, substance use, utilization of pain management and mental health services, and mental and physical health condition conditions.
