Abstract
A review of the clinical and scientific literature on topics of substance dependence/use/abuse in terms of resulting overdoses was conducted. The findings indicated several investigations have identified predictors of overdose but prediction figures are small thus speculating the need for stronger predictors of overdose. The utility of current approaches involved detailed research approaches that were time consuming and yielded findings that were descriptive and in some cases, validly descriptive, posthumously in some cases. New models following the prediction of multiple risk factors show great promise. This presentation will provide an overview of the literature review findings and invite the consideration of more innovative means of investigation
