CoE Office Hours: Responding to the Opioid Overdose Epidemic

Daunting statistics and rising death rates have necessitated diverse approaches by providers in all sectors, including professionals in public health, behavioral health, and primary care. Interventions have included an increase in medication-assisted treatment (MAT), medication-first policies, and harm reduction strategies.
