MSAPC presents: Athletes and Addiction: Making Injuries Safe
Many young athletes face a serious injury at some point; one that might lead to the need for pain relievers from a doctor. When an opioid is prescribed, given the risk of addiction, should your child take it? Are there alternatives? Is there a way to use them safely? Dr. Daniel Muse is an emergency medicine specialist in Brockton, MA.
He is also passionate about reducing the high incidence of drug abuse and addiction.
Join us on Wednesday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m. for a webinar with Dr. Muse to discuss these questions as well how athletes, parents and coaches can help prevent addiction.
Each webinar in the Milton Learns Together: Webinar Wednesdays series is approximately 30 minutes long with a question and answer period to follow. They are free and no registration is required.
