The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids today released a video series for parents who are seeking specific help with a loved one’s IV (intravenous) opioid use. The Intravenous Drug Video Module can be viewed on the Partnership’s website.
Intravenous substance use adds a significantly greater level of risk to substance use disorders. Parents who suspect their child may be engaging in IV drug use need to know what to look for and this in-depth video series helps identify signs of intravenous opioid use, so parents can help a loved one who is engaging in this dangerous behavior.
The Intravenous Drug Video Module features four videos, which include:
• Understanding How Opioid Addiction Can Lead to IV Use
• How IV Use Adds Another Level of Risk
• Spotting the Signs of IV Use
• How To Help a Loved One Struggling With IV Heroin or Opioid Use
