This bill would require that, when a health care professional or first responder administers an opioid antidote to a person experiencing a drug overdose, the person must be provided with information concerning substance abuse treatment programs and resources. If the person is admitted to a health care facility or receives treatment in the emergency department of a health care facility, the health care professional with primary responsibility for the person's care would be required to provide the information at any time after treatment for the drug overdose is complete but prior to the person's discharge from the facility. The health care professional would also be required to document the provision of the information in the person's medical record and would be permitted to develop a substance abuse treatment plan for the person. If opioid antidote is administered by a first responder and the person is not subsequently transported to a health care facility, the first responder would be required to provide the information when treatment for the drug overdose is complete. The Commissioner of Health, in consultation with the Commissioner of Human Services, would be required to develop informational materials concerning substance abuse treatment programs and resources for dissemination to health care professionals and first responders to facilitate the provision of information to patients pursuant to the bill.
