The toolkit is the first federal resource promoting safety and prevention information for persons at risk for overdose, such as how to recognize and respond appropriately to overdose, specific drug-use behaviors to avoid, and the role of naloxone in preventing fatal overdose. The toolkit equips communities and local governments with material to develop policies and practices to help prevent and respond appropriately to opioid-related overdose.
