ONE EVIDENCE-BASED STRATEGY TO HELP ADDRESS OPIOID EMERGENCIES IS TARGETED BASED NALOXONE DISTRIBUTION
Why this strategy helps
By equipping individuals with naloxone and training to identify and respond to an overdose, the potential delay between the onset of an opioid overdose and the delivery of life-saving care can be reduced from hours to seconds.
This strategy is useful when:
- Naloxone is provided to people at high risk of experiencing or witnessing overdose.
- Harm Reduction agencies and trusted clinicians are properly educated and comfortable distributing naloxone to those using illicit opioids or receiving a high-risk opioid prescription.
DID YOU KNOW?
In the 12 months ending February 2023, there were an estimated 81,024 overdose deaths due to opioids.
Naloxone administration results in high rates of successful opioid overdose reversal. Opioid overdose events where naloxone is administered are reversed at rates between 83%-100%.
Take-home naloxone kits and Opioid Overdose Education and Naloxone Distribution (OEND) implementation lead to reduced opioid-related deaths when compared to communities with lower rates of distribution.
Reductions due to naloxone distribution in community-level fatal overdoses mortality range from 37 to 90 percent.
