Beyond the Save is geared toward professionals in the Substance Use Disorder (SUD) field, including first responders, law enforcement, and treatment providers. We intend for this website to be a hub for information/resources to better serve individuals dealing with SUD, especially when opioids are involved.
The Beyond the Save: Provider Toolkit has been designed as a collaborative effort to educate,
provide tools and connect resources. Many people who struggle with opioid misuse also have
legitimate needs for pain control and there are alternate options available for anyone who is at
risk of opioid misuse. It is imperative that providers take a moment to assess patients before
prescribing opioid medications, be aware of alternate options and be ready to connect patients
to helpful resources.
Medical care providers can help reduce opioid abuse and overdose by checking the Michigan
Automated Prescription System (MAPS), reviewing patient history, and conducting a brief screening
(see page 5 for screening tools of patients to identify those at risk for dependency or overdose).
Patient, family and peers should be informed that all medications must be taken only as directed,
as opioids that are not taken as directed can cause death.
