2015 Annual Opioid Poisoning, Overdose and Prevention Report to the Governor and NYS Legislature:

This report is the first of an annual report and is hosted on the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) website with other informational materials.

It provides an overview of opioid-related mortality and morbidity and other consequences of heroin and prescription opioid misuse across New York State over the last five years. It also summarizes new and expanded initiatives and collaborative cross-disciplinary efforts to identify, assess, and address those problems, as well as the legal and regulatory developments that opened the way for them.

This report reflects the work of many state and local government agencies, which have collected, shared and examined data to identify where and to whom opioid overdoses are occurring, and to help inform timely, effective public health and public safety policy and practices to reduce the related deaths, disease, and social harms affecting New York’s communities.
