The Toolkit and Uses
This toolkit provides key information to school administrators and communities to support best practices for student athletes in an effort to reduce the use and misuse of prescription opioids among this high risk population. This toolkit is intended to help guide and raise awareness of opioid use and abuse among young student athletes and to provide evidence-based recommendations and information that will encourage and promote policy and practice changes that will strengthen schools, athletic departments and community based athletic programs.

Student athletes across the state, as well as parents of players under the age of 18, will be required to watch a new educational video as a condition of participation in New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) sports programs.
