Some may be reformulations of drugs that we already know can be used for treatment of overdoses. Some of them will be totally new ideas about pathways that have been recently discovered. This will be something we put very high on the list of things we just have to do. It was partly because we believed as recently as 20 years ago that we had this problem solved.
