Resources to Help Providers Treat Patients Who Use Cocaine

  • In 2018, more New Yorkers died from drug overdose than homicide, suicides and motor vehicle crashes combined.
  • From 2014 to 2018, the rate of overdose deaths involving cocaine more than doubled from 4.7 to 10.7 per 100,000 New Yorkers.
  • In 2018, 52% of overdose deaths involved cocaine.

Health care providers can play a central role in reversing the epidemic of drug overdose deaths. The Health Department is conducting a public health detailing campaign, consisting of one-to-one educational outreach visits with providers on the risks associated with cocaine use. During visits, Cocaine Action Kits are distributed that contain useful provider and patient resources. You can also access them electronically below. Use this kit to help reduce drug use, prevent relapse and decrease the risk of overdose among your patients.
