States, territories and certain other jurisdictions can apply for up to $1 million per year for five years to train first responders and other community sectors to use naloxone and other strategies to prevent prescription drug/opioid-related deaths in adults, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration announced today. In addition, 27 states identified as having an increase of 25% or more in admissions for opioid use disorders between 2007 and 2012 can apply for grants of up to $1 million to increase the number of people receiving medication-assisted treatment and integrated care for opioid use disorders and reduce use of prescription opioids in a non-prescribed manner. In other news, the White House today announced that more than 60 medical schools will require students to complete some form of prescriber education in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s new guidelines for prescribing opioids for chronic pain.
