Beyond Opioids: Other Drugs of Concern
June 23, 6-7:30pm
The opioid epidemic and opioid/opiate drugs receive significant press, and are great cause for concern. There are many other drugs, however, that are frequently misused and can result in harm. Join us as two Washington Poison Center pharmacists cover the common “drugs of abuse” they respond to in our Poison Helpline call center. We will discuss over-the-counter medications, stimulants, cold/cough preparations, kratom, and more, as well as the common scenarios our call center encounters with these substances. Bring your questions, and leave with increased awareness of various drugs of concern and the strategies to prevent or reduce harm from them.
Please register with the form below. We will email the link to join in the week leading up to the presentation.
