There are a variety of ways to help reduce opioid misuse and prevent an overdose from occurring.
Wisconsin uses a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program that helps healthcare professionals to effectively monitor and control the amount of prescriptions for controlled substance medications.
This law protects all people who help an individual experiencing an overdose to get the care needed.
