Overdose Response

breakthecycle.jpgBetween 2018 and 2020, approximately 2500 Alabamians lost their lives to drug overdoses. This is preventable loss of life. The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) is dedicated to providing information and assistance to those impacted by overdoses in Alabama. Everyone in our communities has the potential to prevent future overdoses. ADPH continues to monitor information from healthcare providers regarding overdoses in our communities and will alert those who wish to receive notifications about overdose events near their location. To learn more and sign-up, visit Overdose Notification.

For resources for those who have been impacted by an overdose or who seek information on how to help, visit our Overdose Resources.
