While it known there is a moderate co-occurrence of both psychiatric and opioid use disorder (OUD) generally, it is not known whether this significantly differs in a high risk population of those with a recent overdose. In this research, we focus on identifying the prevalence of co-occurring disorders, specifically for those non-treatment seeking individuals who access emergency services for opioid overdose.
