This initiative will consist of research grants and a coordinating center focused on establishing the evidence base for interventions and strategies to prevent initiation of opioid misuse and development of Opioid Use Disorder in at-risk older adolescents and young adults. Of priority are studies that target older adolescents and young adults in health care settings, justice settings, and other systems and settings opportune for accessing and engaging at-risk older adolescents and young adults.
This program will fund a single Coordinating Center to centralize support for individual research projects supported through the HEAL initiative. The Coordinating Center will be responsible for an array of scientific and logistical support activities in the following four broad areas: coordination and communication, data collection and management, implementation design and methodology consultation, and economic evaluation.
