Naloxone for Providers Action Kit

  • 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. Because of this, the Health Department is conducting a public health detailing campaign, consisting of one-to-one educational outreach visits with providers on offering naloxone to at-risk patients and to their friends and family. During visits, Naloxone Action Kits are distributed that contain useful provider and patient resources, and are also available electronically below. We hope you will use the kit to help decrease the risk of opioid overdose among your patients.
