This is an academic paper that provides a scoping review of opioid policy interventions that the federal and state governments as well as organizations have used to address the opioid crisis, some of which include prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMP), pain clinic laws, laws restricting opioid prescribing, health insurance strategies, educational interventions, and naloxone distribution. The evidence for each intervention is assessed.
