Overdose Law Policy Infographic
The National Drug Control Strategy supports comprehensive overdose prevention efforts, to include: Public education campaigns about signs of overdose, emergency interventions, “Good Samaritan” laws where they exist, and connecting people to substance use disorders treatment. Training and availability of emergency interventions, naloxone for first responders (including campus police). Education among health care providers to inform patients using opioids (and their family members/caregivers) about overdose. Naloxone co-prescribing. Overdose Prevention and Education
Opioid Overdose Resuscitation The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) has created a card explaining how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. The card, called “Opioid Overdose Resuscitation,” is available for download on the ASA Web site. We ask all of you to disseminate this card as widely as possible. To download the card, go to:

U.S. Health Care reforms will extend access to and Parity for substance use treatment and mental health services for an estimated 62 million Americans and help integrate substance use treatment into mainstream health care. 1 Coverage for expanded Medicaid population is likely to create an increased need for substance abuse treatment services and staff. All health insurance sold on Health Insurance Exchanges and provided in Medicaid programs (ACOs, MCOs, and CHIP) must include services for substance use disorders.

Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Enhances access and care for people with substance use disorders. Need to focus on integration of substance use disorders into primary care. Screening is essential for case identification and clinical decision making. Referrals to specialty treatment are critical to increased access to care. Brief Interventions do not appear to be as effective for reducing drug use as for reducing alcohol use.* We need to find new/better interventions in primary care. * Brief Intervention for Problem Drug Use in Safety-Net Primary Care Settings: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Three Distinctions Among Collaborative Models 1 Coordinated: Routine screening for behavioral health problems in primary care settings, but delivery of services may occur in different settings. Co-located: Medical services and behavioral health services located in the same facility. Integrated: Medical services and behavioral health services located either in the same facility or in separate locations. 1 Collins, C. Hewson, D., L., Munger, R., & Wade, T. (2010).
