About The POINTS Study

POINTS Study 121323 Presentation.png

Study Aims

Preventing Overdoses Involving Stimulants (POINTS) is a CDC-funded grant (R01CE003353) that involved surveys and interviews with people who use stimulants (e.g., cocaine) in greater Providence, Rhode Island (RI) and three Massachusetts (MA) cities (Brockton, Lawrence, and Lynn) - areas that have been disproportionately impacted by fatal stimulant and opioid-involved overdoses. POINTS also involved testing the MA and RI drug supply and assembled local stakeholders from the overdose prevention and response continuum to identify strategies to address the rise in stimulant and opioid-involved overdoses.
