Naloxone, an opiate antagonist that can avert opiate overdose mortality, has only recently been prescribed to drug users in a few jurisdictions (Chicago, Baltimore, New Mexico, New York City, and San Francisco) in the United States. [...] Key Method In 2005, we conducted an evaluation of a comprehensive overdose prevention and naloxone administration training program in New York City.Expand
Overdose Prevention and Naloxone Prescription for Opioid Users in San Francisco
TLDR
Findings from the DOPE Project add to a growing body of research that suggests that IDUs at high risk of witnessing overdose events are willing to be trained on overdose response strategies and use take-home naloxone during overdose events to prevent deaths. Expand
Characteristics of an Overdose Prevention, Response, and Naloxone Distribution Program in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, Pennsylvania
TLDR
Community-based OPPs that equip drug users with skills to identify and respond to an overdose and prescribe naloxone can help users and their peers prevent and reverse potentially fatal overdoses without significant adverse consequences. Expand
Rapid widespread distribution of intranasal naloxone for overdose prevention.
TLDR
A government-supported multisite naloxone initiative appears to achieve rapid, high volume distribution of naloxin to an at-risk population in Norway. Expand
egal changes to increase access to naloxone for opioid overdose eversal in the United States orey
Background: Opioid overdose, which has reached epidemic levels in the United States, is reversible by administration of the medication naloxone. Naloxone requires a prescription but is not aExpand
A Systematic Review of Community Opioid Overdose Prevention and Naloxone Distribution Programs
TLDR
The current evidence from nonrandomized studies suggests that bystanders (mostly opioid users) can and will use naloxone to reverse opioid overdoses when properly trained, and that this training can be done successfully through OOPPs. Expand
Development and Implementation of an Opioid Overdose Prevention and Response Program in Toronto, Ontario
TLDR
The first community-based opioid overdose prevention and response program with naloxone distribution offered by a public health unit in Canada (Prevent Overdose in Toronto, POINT) is described and its potential to save lives in Toronto is encouraged. Expand
Working together: Expanding the availability of naloxone for peer administration to prevent opioid overdose deaths in the Australian Capital Territory and beyond.
TLDR
The development of Australia's first take-home naloxone program in the ACT has been an 'ice-breaker' for development of other Australian programs, and issues to be addressed concern scheduling and cost, legal protections for lay administration, prescribing as a barrier to scale-up and intranasal administration. Expand
Incorporation of poison center services in a state-wide overdose education and naloxone distribution program.
TLDR
This retrospective case series of 78 cases of bystander-administered naloxone reports a 75.6% overall rate of reversal in heroin overdoses and admission to the intensive care unit rates were lower in heroin overdose than prescription opioid overdoses. Expand
Naloxone Training From Nonmedical Personnel: Benefits Before, During, and After Overdose Events
TLDR
A brief, 15-minute naloxone training delivered by nonmedical personnel enhanced overdose knowledge and led to positive reversal outcomes, substantiate the effectiveness of n aloxone in reversing overdose symptoms and offer additional benefits and improve follow-up reporting. Expand
The role of take-home naloxone in the epidemic of opioid overdose involving illicitly manufactured fentanyl and its analogs
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the epidemiology, public health impact, and pharmacologic properties of IMF is provided to provide growing evidence that higher dose or multiple administrations of naloxone are required to fully reverse IMF related toxicity. Expand

A program to educate opiate users in the prevention of opiate overdose and its reversal with intramuscular naloxone is described here, within a large comprehensive harm reduction program network. Expand
Take home naloxone and the prevention of deaths from opiate overdose: two pilot schemes
TLDR
The preliminary results of two pilot schemes to provide take home naloxone to opiate users are presented and opiate misusers are asked to report on any use of the drug. Expand
Naloxone distribution and cardiopulmonary resuscitation training for injection drug users to prevent heroin overdose death: A pilot intervention study
TLDR
This pilot study investigated the safety and feasibility of training injection drug using partners to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation and administer naloxone in the event of heroin overdose, and the effectiveness of this peer intervention to prevent fatal heroin overdose. Expand
Preventing opiate overdose fatalities with take-home naloxone: pre-launch study of possible impact and acceptability.
TLDR
Substantial proportions of both community and treatment samples of drug misusers have witnessed an overdose death which could have been prevented through prior training in resuscitation techniques and administration of home-based supplies of naloxone. Expand
Prevalence and correlates of opiate overdose among young injection drug users in a large U.S. city.
TLDR
The high prevalence of witnessing and experiencing opiate overdoses among young, newly initiated IDUs and NIDUs and the results could inform the growing number of overdose prevention efforts throughout the U.S. Expand
Should we conduct a trial of distributing naloxone to heroin users for peer administration to prevent fatal overdose?
TLDR
A trial could be conducted to determine whether this intervention improves the management of overdose or results in a net increase in harm (by undermining existing prevention strategies, precipitating naloxone related complications, or resulting in riskier heroin use). Expand
Take-home naloxone to reduce heroin death.
TLDR
Although the distribution of naloxone holds promise for further reducing heroin overdose mortality, problems remain and it may be insufficient in some cases to revive the victim, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), especially rescue breathing, may also be needed. Expand
Overdosing among young injection drug users in San Francisco.
TLDR
Examination of overdosing and injection-related risk behavior in young injection drug users in San Francisco found that risk of overdose in young injectors is acute and closely associated with HIV risk. Expand
