Description
 
It is critical that existing recommendations to reduce high rates of overdose among people who use opioids, both illicitly and prescribed, be systematically implemented  and followed globally. Efforts to increase the uptake of existing recommended  approaches (such as opioid agonist maintenance treatment and making naloxone available to medical staff and treatment facilities) should be a priority.
