Prevention practitioners across the country acknowledge the need to understand emerging substance problems, especially when the nation’s prevention workforce is focused so intently on addressing the opioid crisis. The multi-pronged approaches to addressing opioid misuse and overdose in our states, tribes, jurisdictions and communities have left fewer resources to survey and intervene in the possible next drug crises. Support is needed to better understand what these new drug trends are, and how to simultaneously monitor and address these problems while continuing to focus on opioid misuse prevention efforts.
This webinar will present emerging drug trends coinciding with the rise in opioid misuse at the national and regional levels and explore the role of prevention in addressing these substance misuses. We will also highlight best practices for monitoring and addressing new priority substance problems in various regions throughout the U.S.
