Developing a Prescription Opioid Overdose Prevention Intervention


This study is a pilot randomized controlled trial of a three-session motivational intervention to reduce overdose and HIV risk behaviors among patients at a residential addictions treatment center. After screening, 138 participants were selected for randomization and received either the motivational intervention, which included two group sessions and one individual, tailored session, or an equal attention enhanced usual care condition. Participants were followed at 3- and 6-months later to assess overdose and HIV risk behaviors.
