If you have an emergency, dial 911 because saving someone from an opioid overdose requires a quick response.
There is no “one size fits all” approach to treating Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Patients with OUD should have access to addiction treatment, mental health services, and medical care. In addition, many people with OUD benefit from medication assisted treatment integrated with addiction counseling.
Good Samaritan laws provide limited immunity for minor drug violations, drug paraphernalia, and being under the influence at the time of the medical emergency.
If you or someone you know is struggling with opioid addiction – don’t wait. Reach out. You just might save someone’s life. Avoid opioid prescription addiction. Get help today.
