HEAL Initiative: Preventing Opioid Use Disorder in Older Adolescents and Young Adults – Mar 13

Posted by National Institutes of Health on February 19, 2019

This FOA is intended to solicit two-phase research applications to develop, adapt and test interventions and strategies to prevent initiation of opioid misuse and development of OUD in at-risk older adolescents and young adults (ages 16-30). The goal is to stimulate research studies conducted in populations and geographic areas most affected by the opioid crisis or with indicators of an emerging crisis. Of priority are studies that target older adolescents and young adults in health care settings (including primary care, surgical, orthopedic and other specialty care, dental care, emergency departments, urgent care, HIV/STI and reproductive health clinics, prenatal clinics, school-based health centers, federally qualified health centers, military medicine settings, occupational health settings), justice settings (including criminal justice, juvenile justice, as well as child welfare and other systems that cross with the justice system) and other systems and settings. Studies that include understudied at-risk older adolescent and young adult populations are strongly encouraged. Examples include, but are not limited to individuals in rural or reservation settings, women, veterans, and individuals with a history of polysubstance use or mental disorders.
