Province promises more to combat opioid overdoses

Peterborough, ON, Canada / (CHEXTV)

Ontario has announced a new strategy aimed at reducing drug addiction and fatal overdoses — including expanded access to Naloxone. . . by making it free and de-listing

In an announcement Wednesday morning, the province has indicated it will ensure Naloxone is free, and will de-list high-strength forms of long-acting opioids from the drug formulary.

The province is also going to put in 17 million dollars to operate 17 chronic pain clinics to help patients find other ways to manage pain.
