Our Action Plan
We have one goal: to save lives
Our state continues to face an overdose crisis. Rhode Island has been a national leader in responding to this crisis but there’s still a lot more to be done. We’re still losing people to overdose. To keep building on our progress and continue to save lives, we’ve updated our plan.

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

FACT : This means we're helping people keep their opioid prescriptions safe and promoting alternatives to opioid pain medications.
Everyone can learn how to use naloxone 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.
Anyone who is ready for treatment can get help when they are ready.

We know that recovery from addiction is possible for everyone.

FACT :  We have more recovery support services than ever in our state.
