CDC Vitalsigns: Emergency Departments and Opioid Treatment
Opioid overdose Emergency Department (ED) visits rose 30% from 2016 to 2017, and persons who have had an overdose are more likely to have a repeat episode. Those facts and more information are presented in CDC Vitalsigns and video citing emergency departments a venues for action. CDC also states that repeat overdoses may be prevented with medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD), by providing naloxone, linking patients to treatment and referral services, and providing health departments with critical data on overdoses.
