Now What? The Role of Prevention Following a Nonfatal Opioid Overdose

Describes three post-overdose interventions that have shown promise in reducing the risk of subsequent overdoses and improving other health outcomes among people who have experienced a non-fatal overdose. Sometimes referred to as warm handoffs, these interventions represent a collaborative effort among law enforcement, medical providers, social workers, and prevention professionals to engage individuals who have experienced a non-fatal overdose and their family members in the period immediately following the overdose event.
