Researchers: Dr Suzanne Nielsen (Principal investigator)

Brief description Pharmaceutical opioid dependence is a growing problem. There are effective treatments available, yet few people who need treatment receive it. Currently, pharmacists receive little training on substance use disorders, yet are in contact with almost every person likely to develop problems with pharmaceutical opioids. This project will take an innovative approach to involve pharmacists in identifying those developing problems with pharmaceutical opioids and referring them to treatment.
