Standing Order Naloxone Distribution in Massachusetts

Dr. Avik Chatterjee recently published “Broadening access to naloxone:  Community predictors of standing order naloxone distribution in Massachusetts” in Drug and Alcohol Dependence. They found that Naloxone by standing order in Massachusetts increased, there are inequities in dispensing NSO based on ethnicity and location, more NSO is dispensed in areas where more people receive buprenorphine, more NSO is dispensed in areas with opioid-related overdose deaths and NSO has expanded naloxone access but more approaches are necessary.
