NIH's 'PEERx' for teens to be showcased at Rx Drug Abuse Summit
Date:4/3/2012

A unique, new campaign targeting teens will be on exhibit at the first national summit addressing the prescription drug abuse epidemic. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will showcase "PEERx," a NIDA initiative that uses interactive videos and other tools to educate teens about the dangers of prescription drug abuse and help them to spread the word. Teen leaders from SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) will assist NIDA in exhibiting PEERx and hosting a train-the-trainer workshop for state and national leaders, law enforcement officials, medical professionals, community advocates, treatment experts, educators, private industry leaders, and others attending the event.

NIDA's involvement in the national summit also includes an exhibit for NIDAMED, a collection of tools and resources to assist health care providers in detecting drug abuse early, preventing escalation to addiction, and referring patients to treatment when necessary.
