New opioid study focuses on Nevada teens

A study is underway to better understand the on-going prescription drug abuse crisis in the Las Vegas valley.

And this survey is targeting teens.

This is one of the first, if not the only study in Nevada, that is taking a closer look at the opioid drug abuse issue among teenagers.

Current surveys typically ask students if they use drugs and how long they have been using drugs. This study will be more in-depth. It will look at patterns of behaviors and motivations for drug use.

"I've noticed that there's a lot more drug-related activity in high school than there is in junior high," said Mariel English, Green Valley High School student.

English is a freshman at Green Valley High School, which is the first campus to be surveyed for the new study analyzing opioid abuse among local youth. Almost 1,000 students participated.

"I've had a few friends try it before," English said... Read More
