Yale Experts Draft Strategic Plan In Response to the Connecticut's Opioid and Overdose Epidemics

The Connecticut Opioid REsponse Initiative (CORE) is a strategic plan from Yale experts in response to the state's opioid and overdose epidemics. It recommends:

  1. expanding access to effective, medication-based treatment for substance use disorders;
  2. improving transitions within the treatment domain;
  3. increasing the availability of naloxone — the antidote to reverse an opioid overdose — and;
  4. decreasing the over-prescribing of opioid at high doses or in combination with sedatives.
