Opioid prescriptions remain common for teens and young adults, a new study finds. From 2005 to 2015, nearly 15% of teens and young adults received an opioid prescription during an emergency room visit, according to the study, published in the journal Pediatrics. That's compared with 3% among those who were seen in an outpatient clinic.
