Project Description: The Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) Youth Opioid Response Project set out to increase youth access to substance use treatment services and increase provider efficacy in making timely and effective referrals to treatment. The project focused on high school students in Los Angeles and partnered closely with The L.A. Trust for Children’s Health and the National Center for Youth Law. CHLA worked closely with youth, providers, and subject matter experts to develop campaign materials and associated trainings covering topics such as youth access to confidential substance use treatment services, minor consent laws, OUDs, and MAT.  The project is guided by the values of the DAYAM, including the capacity of young people to achieve their goals and navigate life challenges and the importance of working toward sustainable improvements in the systems that support the health and well-being of young people.
