How to become a registered Opioid Overdose Prevention Program (OOPP)
Opioid Overdose Prevention Programs can train community members and other professionals to administer naloxone. Additionally, OOPP’s are able to distribute naloxone free of charge without a prescription. For more information on how to become an OOPP, visit the New York State Department of Health Website.
Screening Brief Intervention Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)
SBIRT is an evidence-based approach to identifying patients who use alcohol and other drugs at risky levels with the goal of reducing and preventing related health consequences, disease, accidents and injuries. Risky substance use is a health issue and often goes undetected.
SBIRT is a quick, comprehensive screening tool to identify risk behaviors and intervene before a substance use disorder develops. Further, SBIRT can be done by many types of providers and professionals.
For more information on SBIRT or to schedule a training visit New York State OASAS.
