Too many teens just dont realize this. They think because they areprescribed, they are safer than street drugs. Not true.What are they finding? Opioids (such as the pain relievers OxyContin and Vicodin), central nervous systemdepressants (e.g., Xanax, Valium), and stimulants (e.g., Concerta, Adderall) are the most commonly abusedprescription drugs. What are they doing with these powerful drugs? They are taking them, not for the reasonthey were prescribed but to get high, and often at doses above the prescribed levels. They may crush the drug,releasing its effects in a rush instead of over time.National experts will talk about the latest trends and issues, and discuss approaches that allow you to understandand implement evidence-based approaches to promote positive youth development and effectively address thisepidemic in your community.To register for this webinar, go to: CYP Team Points of ContactCDC = Nichelle Murphy Nichelle.murphy@navy.milSAC/YOUTH/TEEN/YOUTH SPORTS = Brent Edwards brent.a.edwards@navy.milCDH = Deborah Enright Deborah.enright@navy.milOUTEACH/EFMP/NACCRRA = Terri Dietrich terri.dietrich@navy.milINSPECTIONS = Janie Heisner janie.heisner@navy.milTRAINING = Maryann Coutino Maryann.coutino@navy.milCHILD & YOUTH EDUCATION SERVICES = Chuck Clymer chuck.clymer@navy.milFollow CYP:(Click on logo) Navy CYP Navy SLO Youth CYP Professional Sponsorship 21 May 2012 – Weekly CYP Update| 3
