Prescription Drug Overdose

The U-M Injury Center does considerable work in the emerging field of prescription drug overdose -- particularly opioid misuse, which was recently declared an epidemic by CDC.  From funded pilot studies to special day-long educational events, we are working to find ways to anticipate and prevent opioid overdose across populations.  Below you'll find links to more information about our work in this area, as well as a listing of members doing work or interested in this area.  We invite you to explore and join us as we move forward to advance research and prevention.
