Naloxone Data

Data updated quarterly. Some data does not contain complete location information so maps may not show the total amount of naloxone distributed. The number of naloxone kits distributed may be under-reported and is subject to change

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

In our state, community programs and pharmacies are working hard to get naloxone into the hands of people who need it. This bar chart shows us how many kits of naloxone were handed out or dispensed in 2015 and 2016. The map below shows us where the naloxone kits were handed out in our state.

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.
