Study Description: Adolescent accidental deaths caused by prescription drug abuse continue to rise across the country. Unfortunately, to date, there is no systematic review of the literature addressing effective interventions leaving communities to fight back with only anecdotal evidence and piecemeal solutions. This study lead by researchers in partner with First Med Defense seeks to produce such a systematic review that will amalgamate effective interventions currently scattered across the literature. It is our hope that the results of this study will help community benefit organizations, policy makers, and health care providers make informed decisions as they fight against this epidemic.
