The timely collection, sharing, analysis, and dissemination of fatal and nonfatal overdose and naloxone administration data enables communities to develop tailored intervention strategies targeting specific geographic areas or high-risk individuals.
In 2017, the Washington-Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) launched a free, user-friendly mobile tool known as the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) to easily and quickly track the locations of suspected fatal and nonfatal overdoses and the administration of naloxone. ODMAP provides overdose data within and across jurisdictions to support community-based efforts to mobilize responses to overdose spikes.
The ODMAP demonstration project, co-funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, supports eight states in achieving statewide adoption of ODMAP. This initiative also enhances the ability of local communities within these selected states to effectively leverage ODMAP data, identify “hot spots” and trends of concern, and develop coordinated public safety, public health, and behavioral health intervention strategies.
Reducing overdose deaths by supporting statewide adoption of ODMAP and strengthening the ability of communities to leverage the data to develop coordinated public safety, public health, and behavioral health intervention strategies.
Oregon has one of the highest rates of misuse of prescription opioids in the nation. On average, 5 Oregonians die every week from an opioid overdose. Heroin contributes to a significant number of overdose deaths, and illicit fentanyl-related deaths are increasing dramatically. Many overdose deaths involve multiple drugs, including both pharmaceutical and illicit opioids. In response to this crisis, Chris Gibson, Oregon-Idaho HIDTA Director has collaborated with harm reduction programs, such as the Marion County Health and Human Services Narcan Distribution Program. In this partnership, Oregon-Idaho HIDTA has supported the Narcan Distribution Program, which allows access to real-time suspected overdose data feasible. The Marion County in turn uses this data to coordinate with local law enforcement, first responders, and treatment services to order, distribute, and track supplies of Narcan Nasal Spray. A focus of this presentation will be to discuss a framework for collaboration between local partners to make safer and healthier communities.Register
