South Kingstown Pain Management Awareness
South Kingstown Prevention Partnership, 2018
Approximately 1.35 million young athletes suffer a sports related injury every year1. Many of these injuries will have some degree of pain associated with them, and will often require pain management. The South Kingstown Partnership for Prevention is participating in the pain management awareness campaign thinkaboutpain.com (TAP) which encourages the parents, guardians, and coaches to educate themselves on pain medication when they are prescribed to an athlete.
In the event of a mental health or substance use crisis, call to connect with a licensed counselor, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Bilingual support and medications to assist with recovery are available.
