The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has issued a draft Recommendation Statement that says there is not enough evidence to support the use of primary care interventions to prevent or curb drug misuse among children and teens. "Because of the importance of keeping kids healthy and safe, the Task Force calls on the research community to continue to search for ways to prevent and reduce illicit drug and non-medical pharmaceutical use in kids and teens," said task force member Adelita Gonzales Cantu.
