In the midst the opioid epidemic, quality prevention and treatment efforts have become a priority in Massachusetts. The number of unintentional, opioid-related deaths in the state has more than doubled in just 3 years—from 2012 to 2015.
In response, Massachusetts’ policies are changing—clean syringes are now made available, there are naloxone distribution and training centers, the 911 Good Samaritan law protects anyone legally who calls to report an overdose.
