TOP is intended to help raise awareness of opioid use among student athletes and to provide evidence-based information to strengthen policies and practices within schools, athletic department and community based athletic programs. Athletes are more prone to injuries that could result in getting prescribed prescription opioids (narcotic pain relievers), which can lead to misuse, addiction and even accidental overdose or death.
Our agency is available to provide free presentations and support within Mercer County to schools, teams as well as community sports programs. Interested coaches, school personnel or healthcare providers, contact by phone 609-396-5874 ext. 205.
