Naloxone Data

Note:
We update this information every 3 months.
Some data does not contain complete location information so maps may not show the total amount of naloxone distributed.

Note:
Here we use data from the 48 Hour Reporting System (RIDOH), Rhode Island Department of Corrections (RIDOC), community-based organizations like PONI and ANCHOR Recovery, and Rhode Island pharmacies.

Good Samaritan Laws save lives

In Rhode Island, the Good Samaritan law protects you from arrest for helping anyone you think is having an overdose. You should call 9-1-1 immediately for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) if someone isn’t responding or you think an overdose has happened. Every second counts.


This map shows us the number of naloxone doses given by EMS, Police, and friends or family members to individuals brought to an Emergency Department and reported through Rhode Island’s 48-Hour Reporting System. We also show the rate per 10,000 residents in each town. The rate is the number of naloxone doses administered, divided by total population for each city or town, multiplied by 10,000.
