overdose spike logoWe closely watch hospital and ambulance data to identify unexpected increases, or spikes, in drug-involved overdoses.

Just like a tornado siren tells us when there is an increased risk for a tornado touching down, an overdose spike tells us there is an increased risk for overdose in the community. A change in the local drug supply may cause a spike. Very strong opioids are being mixed into all types of drugs, including heroin, cocaine, counterfeit or fake prescription pills, meth, and cannabis. Overdose deaths are preventable! Working together, we can save lives!
