  • Identify appropriate post-opioid overdose linkage and referrals
  • Understand what a safety plan is and how to use this with the individual who has experienced an opioid overdose
  • Identify strategies for providing ongoing support for staff and volunteers who have responded to and/or witnessed an opioid overdose
