Enhancing Knowledge of Opioid Risk Factors to Decrease Susceptibility

Enhancing Knowledge of Opioid Risk Factors to Decrease Susceptibility

This project addresses the patient knowledge influence on the decision to use drugs for recreation purposes by developing and pilot testing a patient education intervention for patients undergoing routine dental treatment that is amenable to providing information on the risks and consequences of opioid misuse/abuse. If preliminary evidence of efficacy is demonstrated, the concept may be amenable to development of a broad program that provides preventive information delivered to adolescents and young adults patients during dental appointments to decrease their susceptibility to opioid use disorders.
