    The nation’s opioid overdose epidemic is the single greatest public health crisis of our time. In the past five years, we have lost more than 1,400 Rhode Islanders to opioid-related overdose. Governor Gina M. Raimondo established the Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force in 2015 to reduce the number of overdose deaths and save lives.

    As a part of this statewide initiative, the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) Drug Overdose Prevention Program is partnering with local businesses and corporations to conduct workplace outreach and education. These free opportunities include:

    • Workshops on overdose prevention and the risks of taking opioid prescription pain medications;
    • Employer toolkits with local treatment and recovery resources;
    • Naloxone administration training and overdose response; and
    • Recovery-friendly workplace initiatives.

    To learn more and to schedule an appointment, contact Monica B. Tavares, Education and Outreach Coordinator, Monica.Tavares@health.ri.gov, (401) 222-1673.
