Basically, tighten up. Depending on how aggressive they are preflop should change your strategy too. If there are a lot of multi-way pots with no preflop raises, you should try to see a lot of flops with low pocket pairs and suited connectors, hoping to catch a good hand. If standard preflop raises aren't pushing people off hands preflop, when you get a premium hand like KK or AA bet enough to get most people to fold. The last thing you need is that kind of money flying around and for you to have no idea if your overpair is good or not. If you have to bet 15x the BB to get some people to fold, bet that much. You want one or possibly two callers, but any more is just asking for disaster, especially when they'll throw around money whether they hit or not.
And of course the obvious. Value bet the shit out of your made hands, and all but eliminate bluffing from your game. When people will call too many pots, there's no reason to set any image for yourself. Just wait for the hands and let them pay you off.
