Population Health

Langabeer, James & Champagne-Langabeer, Tiffany & Luber, Samuel & Prater, Samuel & Stotts, Angela & Kirages, Katherine & Yatsco, Andrea & Chambers, Kimberly. (2019). Outreach to people who survive opioid overdose: Linkage and retention in treatment. Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment. 111. 10.1016/j.jsat.2019.12.008.

  • Many individuals with prior opioid overdose do not voluntarily engage in treatment.
  • Mobile peer and paramedic outreach teams were used to engage people who survived a recent overdose into treatment.
  • 33% of people contacted chose to engage in treatment and 88% of these remained in treatment for the first 30 days.
  • Outreach could be a promising strategy to motivate and retain people who have survived an overdose in treatment.
