Information for Adults, Parents & Guardians
The New Hampshire Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness aims to promote healthy choices and educate students about the dangers of opioid use. We encourage parents to utilize the resource links below and learn more about this growing epidemic.
Many parents are often reluctant to believe that their children may misuse or develop an addiction to prescription opioids. But anyone who experiments with these powerful medications is at risk for negative consequences, including overdose and addiction.
Signs your child may be abusing or misusing opioids:
Pills or medication bottles are missing from your home
Taking medication in excess of how it has been prescribed
Abrupt changes in their finances
Dramatic mood changes
Lower grades, changes in friends, or changes in sleep or appetite
Loss of concern about appearance
Physical signs such as fatigue, confusion, weight loss, slurred speech, dizziness and changes in pupil size
