Preventing opioid overdoses deaths1

Preventing Opioid Overdoses & Deaths

  • STRATEGY 1: Encourage health care professionals, persons at high risk, family members and others to learn how to prevent and respond to opioid overdose.

    • Practitioners should be encouraged to update their knowledge of evidence-based practices for the use of opioid analgesics to manage pain, as well as specific steps to prevent and manage opioid overdose.

Preventing Opioid Overdoses & Deaths

  • STRATEGY 2: Ensure access to treatment for individuals who are misusing or addicted to opioids or who have other substance use disorders.

    • Effective medication-assisted treatment of substance use disorders reduces the risk of overdose and helps overdose survivors attain a healthier life.


Preventing opioid overdoses deaths3

Preventing Opioid Overdoses & Deaths

  • STRATEGY 3: Ensure ready access to naloxone:

    • Opioid overdose deaths can be prevented when naloxone is administered in a timely manner.

    • As an opioid antagonist, naloxone blocks the effects of opioids on the brain and reverses respiratory depression, which usually is the cause of overdose deaths.

    • Naloxone has no psychoactive effects and thus no potential for abuse.


Preventing opioid overdoses deaths4

Preventing Opioid Overdoses & Deaths

  • STRATEGY 3 (continued):

    • It is important that local EMS personnel and other first responders be trained to care for overdose, and that they are allowed to stock naloxone in their drug kits.

    • Physicians should consider prescribing naloxone to their patients who are receiving long-term pain treatment with opioids.


Preventing opioid overdoses deaths5

Preventing Opioid Overdoses & Deaths

  • STRATEGY 4: Encourage the public to call 911:

    • A person who is experiencing opioid overdose needs immediate medical attention.

    • An essential first step is to get help from someone with medical expertise as quickly as possible.

    • Therefore, members of the public should be educated to call 911.

    • All they need to say is, “Someone is not breathing” and give a clear address or description of the location.


Preventing opioid overdoses deaths6

Preventing Opioid Overdoses & Deaths

  • STRATEGY 5: Encourage prescribers to use state Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs):

    • State Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) are a key strategy for addressing the misuse and abuse of prescription opioids and thus preventing opioid overdoses and deaths.

    • Through the PDMP, a prescriber can access a state database to determine whether a patient is filling the prescriptions provided and/or obtaining prescriptions for the same or similar drugs from multiple physicians.

Where is SAMHSA’s Opioid Overdose Toolkit available?

  • The information outlined here and more can be viewed at or downloaded from SAMHSA's website at www.samhsa.gov.

  • The toolkit also refers readers to other reliable sources of information, including those offered by the CDC, ONDCP, and private sector organizations.

  • May repurpose portions of current grants to purchase naloxone and the necessary materials to assemble overdose kits.

  • Must revise and resubmit a proposed budget


Individual providers and programs

Individual Providers and Programs

  • For prescribers to routinely prescribe naloxone:

    • Naloxone must be covered by public and private OUTPATIENT pharmacy benefits.

    • Pharmacists need to be aware of plans to routinely prescribe naloxone to stock an adequate supply

    • Pharmacists need to know how the patient will be trained.

Medication assisted treatment

Medication Assisted Treatment


Acopc allegheny county overdose prevention coalition presents

A key driver of the overdose epidemic is underlying substance use disorder…

Expanding access to MATs is a crucial component

of the effort to help patients recover.


Acopc allegheny county overdose prevention coalition presents

Increased access to opioid agonist therapy was associated with a reduction in heroin overdose rates.


Benefits of mat

Benefits of MAT

  • Reduces all cause mortality

  • Reduces HIV seroconversion

  • Improves adherence to medical treatment

  • Improves social function

  • Decreases criminal behaviors

  • Decreases drug use


Acopc allegheny county overdose prevention coalition presents

Opioids were involved in 14.8% of all deaths. Overdose was the leading cause of death…

and overdose deaths in former prisoners accounted for 8.3% of the overdose deaths

among persons aged 15 to 84 years.


Pretreatment and after c are i nterventions to reduce mortality

Pretreatment and After Care Interventions to Reduce Mortality

  • Naloxone and ER injectable naltrexone

  • Detainees

  • Detox

  • Discharge
