Center for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention

    Center for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention

    The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention are excited to announce the creation of the Center for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention, which will be housed at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The new Center will continue to host the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention, which works with partners in government, academia, and communities to coordinate the state’s response to the opioid crisis. The Center also will facilitate interdisciplinary research, identify and promote evidence-based clinical practices, educate health care and public health practitioners, and test, implement, and promote new models of care for the treatment of pain and substance use disorders.

    The Center will give the CU Anschutz community an opportunity to collaborate and coordinate our work, and our vision is to make the Center one of the nation’s leaders in research, education, and community engagement.
