It Started in the Doctor’s Office – Opioid Addiction in Teens

A presentation by The Valley Hospital, New Bridge Medical Center and the Ridgewood Municipal Alliance.

Studies show that most American teenagers who abuse opioid meds first received the drugs from a doctor for pain concerns from things such as a dental procedure or an athletic injury. This, coupled with stress and pressure to succeed socially and the fact that the adolescent brain is still growing, means that teens are vulnerable to addictions. This program will discuss the current opioid abuse problem in teens and why teens are at a higher risk for developing an addiction as well as alternative treatment methods for pain. Learn about prevention and signs of addiction as well.

  • Michael Paolello, M.A., LCADC, Chief Clinical Officer for Substance Abuse Services, New Bridge Medical Center

A physiatrist is a physician specializing in the treatment of acute and chronic pain and musculoskeletal disorders through non-invasive treatments. The specialist focuses on mitigating patients’ afflictions through drug therapy, assistive devices such as a brace or artificial limb, and diverse therapies such as heat and cold, electrotherapies, massage, biofeedback, traction, therapeutic exercise, and education. Specialists in sports medicine offer similar therapies for those suffering from sports injuires.
