Access to Opioid Data
NJ CARES is dedicated to providing the public with a real-time snapshot of the state’s opioid crisis and a breakdown of how each county is being affected. The website includes weekly updates on suspected fatal drug-overdoses and deployments of the life-saving overdose antidote “naloxone”, quarterly reports on the number of opioid prescriptions being written, and other data related to the opioid crisis. The NJ CARES website equips the public with a better understanding of how the opioid addiction crisis is impacting their counties. It alerts them to emerging threats, trends, and issues so they can better protect themselves and their loved ones.
