Several agencies and public officials worked together to map out the data, identify trends, and push for a unified, place-based strategic response down to the zip-code level.The map displays information like where heroin-related arrests have been made, where opioid-related EMS responses have occurred, how many opioid-related Emergency Department visits have been made, how many opioid-related hospitalizations have occurred, and opioid prescription rates of area communities. These efforts and attention helped NKY slow the rates of opioid overdose deaths.
