The KYSOS Emergency Department (ED) Bridge Program team, in collaboration with Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) and Kentucky Pharmacists Association (KPhA), will provide take-home naloxone to all patients upon discharge from the ED.

Patients with a history of overdose (OD), risk for OD, or opioid use disorder (OUD) diagnosis will receive naloxone in hand, thus saving lives and having a significant impact on Kentucky communities.
