Adolescent Substance Use Disorders
The 2019 Office of Drug Policy Idaho Healthy Youth Survey reported that approximately 1 in 9 Idaho students have misused a prescription pain reliever in their lifetime. According to the 2018 SAMHSA National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Idaho ranked 8th among the states pain reliever misuse among persons aged 12 and over.
Led by a panel of subject matter experts in psychiatry, family medicine, addiction medicine, social work and family advocacy, this series will help enhance your competencies and provide the opportunity to learn best practices in screening for and treating substance use disorders in adolescents.
Participating in ECHO Idaho also helps you connect with other peers statewide to identify approaches and resources for advancing patient care and receive insightful feedback on patient cases.
