Track Our Action Plan

Governor Gina Raimondo’s Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force Action Plan focuses on four strategies to prevent overdose and save lives. With this plan, Rhode Island will reduce overdose deaths by 1/3 in 3 years–that means saving hundreds of lives. The plan recommends evidence-based, impactful initiatives in the areas of treatment of addiction, reversal of overdose, prevention, and long-term recovery.
