Working with Behavioral Health Providers to Address and Prevent Addiction

June 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

In this session, we will review evidence-based strategies for preventing opioid-related overdose death. We will review the role of safe storage of medication and illicit drugs in reducing deaths as well as proper drug disposal. We will examine how one behavioral health agency located in Central Maine, a rural community, implemented a systemic approach to screening, brief interventions, and Naloxone saturation as part of their CCBHC (Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic).


  1. Identify three evidence-based strategies for preventing opioid overdose.
  2. Understand one behavioral health agency’s systematic approach to targeted Naloxone distribution.
  3. Understand the role of safe storage of medication in reducing overdose-related deaths, diversion of medications, and reducing access to lethal means of medication.
