Lessons from pharmacists about opioid overdose prevention efforts

As New Jersey continues to invest in solutions to treat opioid dependence and prevent overdose deaths, the Camden Coalition is working locally to assist with the expansion of medications for addiction treatment (MAT) access and explore opportunities for prevention of opioid misuse through data-sharing and pharmacy engagement.
