Opioid and Substance Abuse
Although opioid use is low among youth, many communities have high rates of use among adults. Exposure to substance use and misuse can traumatize youth, and the experience of this trauma predisposes them to future substance use to other negative health outcomes into adulthood. Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is committed to helping the community and work to prevent and reduce the negative impact of opioid and substance abuse among all youth.
