Deaths

Avoided

With

Naloxone


WHY?

Unintentional drug overdose continued to be leading cause of injury-related death in Ohio in 2014

  • Unintentional drug overdoses caused the deaths of 2,482 Ohio residents in 2014

  • On average approximately 5 people die each day in Ohio due to drug overdose. 

  • Unintentional fatal drug overdoses cost Ohioans $2.0 billion in 2012 in medical and work loss costs; while non-fatal, hospital-admitted drug poisonings cost an additional $39.1 million.

  • Total cost equaled an average of $5.4 million each day in medical and work loss costs in Ohio. 


Naloxone is a medication that safely reverses an opioid overdose.



WHAT is Project DAWN?

Is a community-based drug overdose education and naloxone distribution program.  Participants receive training on:

  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of overdose

  • Distinguishing between different types of overdose

  • Performing rescue breathing
