The Non-Fatal Opioid Overdose Tracker is now available for public use!
The first-of-its-kind data dashboard, which was developed for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) using national EMS data, will help policymakers and service providers target responses to the overdose epidemic and save more lives.
This information will help first responders identify trends and patterns of overdoses so they can direct prevention strategies more effectively.
“This dashboard puts data to work, strengthening our ability to save lives and fight back against the opioid crisis,” said Ann Carlson, Acting Administrator of NHTSA.
The Biden Administration’s National Drug Control Strategy calls for developing and strengthening the nation’s data systems to reach people at-risk of an overdose, and expand access to treatment for substance use disorder and high-impact harm reduction interventions like naloxone.
