Buprenorphine Action Kit

Resources to Help Providers Treat Opioid Use Disorder

  • In 2017, more New Yorkers died from drug overdose than homicide, suicides and motor vehicle crashes combined.
  • Eighty percent of overdose deaths in 2017 involved an opioid.

Health care providers can play a central role in reversing the epidemic of opioid overdose deaths. The Health Department is conducting a public health detailing campaign consisting of one-to-one educational outreach visits with providers on prescribing buprenorphine to treat opioid use disorder. During visits, Buprenorphine Action Kits are distributed that contain useful provider and patient resources. These resources are also available electronically below. We hope you will use the kit to help reduce drug use, prevent relapse and decrease the risk of opioid overdose among your patients.
