Data from the participants in this study were collected using a case study approach. A case study is usually a descriptive observation qualitative research method that focuses on evaluating and or investigating a phenomenon in real-life situations (Hennink, Hutter & Bailey, 2020). In the study, data or information from the participants were collected using various tools and approaches. Primary tools of data collection were both structured and unstructured interviews. The choosing of these two tools was informed by the study design, which focuses on obtaining detailed information about a phenomenon which, in this case, was the experience of the youths who abuse drugs and substance. The sampled group reported being using cannabis and other opioids on many occasions. Therefore, the objective of this case study was to evaluate the real-life experiences of the youth when they were using drugs.
Case study research design is preferred for studying such a phenomenon because of so many reasons. First is that employees random sampling of participants to provide responses that would answer the research questions. Data from the interviews were stored or recorded in books, journals, and digital forms where video and audiotapes were used. Different forms of collected data were analyzed using different methods. Prior to analysis, data were cleaned to ensure validity and accuracy. Video and audio recordings were transcribed before the final analysis. The final analysis of data was done using descriptive statistics where the variables of research were measured in the frequency in which they occurred. Correlational analysis was used to determine the relationship between different variables in the study (Lune & Berg, 2016). Therefore, the findings of this qualitative research were presented as descriptive information detailing the experiences of the youths who use drugs and other substances.

Substance use results into vast majority of life years lost due to illnesses, disability and premature deaths among those aged 15 to 24. It is arguably the most important modifiable health behavior that has impacted the youth. Due to the times we are in, youth are faced by a vast landscape of more potent products, new delivery methods, and synthetic alternatives such as electronic cigarettes, fentanyl, codeine products and potent cannabinoids. These are far more addictive than psychoactive substances that were available to teenagers in the past (Reid, Wild, & Bozarth, 2020). Marijuana, alcohol and tobacco products are more commonly used in high school students as compared to opioids abuse thus the secondary prevention that is to say, initiating treatment of other substance use way before the use of opioids ever begin as logical strategy.
The American academy of pediatrics has called on pediatricians to screen all young adults as well as adolescents for use of substance use and manage the whole spectrum, starting from preinitiation to SUD. Integrating SUD treatments within a pediatrics primary care, as well as engaging primary care providers in managing of substance use as they do to people with other disorders, it has the potential to radically revise as well as dramatically increasing access to SUD treatment for the youths (Drake, 2017).
Among adolescents, Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) are not as common as tobacco, marijuana and alcohol disorders although the death rate of patients with untreated OUD is high. The treatment of OUD include prescription medications, there is use of model that combines both primary care management as well as an integrated behavioral health specialists while at the same time having an expert backup which has demonstrated as being acceptable in the pediatric primary care as well as being feasible with the subspecialist support (Pfeiffer, 2019).
