Our Action Plan
 
We have one goal: to save lives
 
This is the biggest public health crisis our state has ever seen. Rhode Island is a national leader in responding to the overdose crisis, but we aren’t done yet. Now, we’re taking it further with an updated plan. This plan builds on our past success and will help us continue to save lives.

Here’s how our state is saving lives and ending the overdose crisis:

Prevention
We can stop the harm of drug use by supporting people as early as possible.

FACT : This means we're helping people keep their opioid prescriptions safe and promoting alternatives to opioid pain medications.
Rescue
Everyone can learn how to use Naxolone and carry it with them to help stop an opioid overdose.

FACT :  We have community training every month for anyone who wants to learn how to use Naloxone.
Treatment
Anyone who is ready for treatment can get help when they are ready.

FACT :  BH Link is a 24-hour crisis center and support line where anyone can get help.
Recovery
We know that recovery from addiction is possible for everyone.
