What is an Overdose - Reactive Response?  

When someone overdoses in the city, CPAR receives an alert with the person’s name, date of birth, location of the overdose, how many milligrams of Narcan was given, and what hospital they were transported to (if they agreed). Our coaches then attempt to meet the individual at the emergency room, and connect them with immediate  community support, compassion, and resources. Whether it’ their 1st time or 150th time, we are non-judgmental and always show compassion! We have been working with Saint Vincent’s hospital to have full vendor access to their emergency room. The victims that do have an address, a Recovery Coach and a WPD-CIT Officer will go there and conduct a “Knock & Talk:” and offer resources to the victim and/or family member/loved ones.
