A special forum on dealing with opioids when it comes to young athletes who are facing treatment for injury and pain will be held on the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 5 at the Morris County Human Services complex at 1 Medical Drive, Morris Plains, on the former Greystone campus.
This event is specially designed for school administrators, school nurses, coaches, and athletic directors, as well as parents of athletes and the community-at-large.
Sponsored by the Community Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Morris, the forum will teach you about best practices for reducing the use and misuse of prescription opioids among young athletes.
It will introduce you to the TOP Toolkit, developed by the New Jersey Prevention Network (NJPN). The Toolkit will provide policy recommendations as well as educational materials and other resources to help reduce the risk factors that are leading to opiate use among this high-risk population!
