Episodic Overdose Prevention Services
Episodic overdose prevention services (e-OPS) is a service that health care and social service providers (all non-regulated and regulated providers, including paramedics and peer supports) can offer on an as needed basis and in any setting where overdoses may occur. Based on peer witnessing or episodic witnessing services, this protocol is meant to offer observed consumption services anywhere and anytime it’s needed rather than at a fixed site.
