Webinar Description: Dr. Kaminer presents the third webinar regarding youth/adolescent substance use disorder regards the epidemic of drug-related fatal overdoses among young people in the United States. Between 2000 and 2019, the US national suicide rate in youth aged 15 – 19 increased from 8 to 12.8 per 100,000 and similarly, in 20 – 24-year old’s from 12.5 to 17 per 100,000. Due to difficulties assessing intentionality and differences among states, the true rate of intentional drug-related fatal overdoses may not be known. This webinar aims to introduce the magnitude of the epidemic among youth in the United States as well as how this is a difficult health outcome to measure.
