  6. 6. How to Recognize and Respond to an Opioid Overdose •  The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) has created a card explaining how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. •  The card, called “Opioid Overdose Resuscitation,” is available for download on the ASA Web site. •  To download the card, go to: http://www.asahq.org/ WhenSecondsCount/resources
  7. 7. •  There are signs that efforts to reduce and prevent prescription drug abuse are working. o  National data show the rate of past-month nonmedical use of prescription medicines among young adults aged 18 to 25 over the past two years is lower than the rate from 2003 - 2010.1 •  State public health and public safety professionals can take steps to promote safer prescribing practices; improved prescription monitoring; safe disposal; and effective monitoring, intervention, treatment and overdose prevention. •  Long-term success will come from coordination and collaboration at the Federal, state, local, and tribal levels, particularly among public health and public safety leaders.
