In the wake of today's passage by the U.S. Senate of the CARA legislation aimed at improving treatment of opioid addiction and preventing overdoses, a University of Michigan researcher who has studied opioids and overdoses is available to comment.

Amy Bohnert, Ph.D., has published multiple studies on opioid misuse and overdose, and led a successful randomized clinical trial of a brief emergency-room-based intervention.

She has assisted the CDC in preparing its opioid painkiller prescribing guidance.
