New York naloxone use in 2018

First responders and everyday citizens used naloxone, the overdose-reversing drug, about 17,500 times last year across New York in an urgent push to keep those gripped by opioid addiction alive. This database shows the number of naloxone use reports filed by law enforcement, emergency medical services (EMS) and those trained by Community Opioid Overdose Prevention programs (COOP) in 2018.

Note: Does not include naloxone use by New York City police and contains incomplete statistics for law enforcement agencies in Nassau County due to their use of different tracking systems. The numbers also likely include cases where the medication was used on the same person repeatedly during a reporting period.
