abstract

  • The finding that a self-reported survey failed to identify over one-third of individuals at risk for NMPO use is concerning, as is the finding that approximately 17 % of those who admitted to NMPO use may have misstated their prescription-opioid source. The findings presented here are critical to focus prevention efforts, especially for identifying at-risk youths who may misrepresent their use.
