Overdose Risk Management and Compensation in the Era of Naloxone
Funded by: National Institute on Drug Abuse
Project dates: July 2018 - May 2023
Principal Investigator: Bennett, Alex S.
Principal Investigator: Elliott, Luther
PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This study will provide insight into barriers to naloxone awareness and access, as well as the psychosocial and behavioral impacts of being “protected” by naloxone while engaging in overdose risk behaviors, of using naloxone on someone else, and or surviving an overdose in which naloxone was used. Findings from this study will provide an empirical basis to strengthen and refine existing overdose prevention efforts and to design tailored interventions to engage opioid users who have recently survived or reversed an overdose.
