OPIOIDS and PAIN KILLERS
What Parents Need to Know
October 9, 2019 – 6:30-8:00 pm
Occasionally your child may experience pain requiring opioid or other pain medications, especially after surgery or while recuperating from a sports-related injury. These medications are not without risk and may have serious side effects with chronic use, including dependence, addiction, and even overdose death. It is important for parents and other caregivers to learn as much as possible about the safe use of these medications, as well as other non-pharmacological treatments for pain.
Please join Rockford Public Schools for this important Community Education and Prevention Series event on October 9 from 6:30-8:00 pm at Rockford High School. Part of the district’s Developing Healthy Kids initiative, Opioids and Pain Killers will be an informative presentation open to all that will discuss the positive and negative effects of these substances in our society.
