It only takes a little to lose a lot.

Drug overdose remains a leading cause of injury-related death in the United States. Overdoses involving prescription and illicit opioids take the lives of 128 people every day.

Florida Overdose Data to Action 

Opioid Response Activities 

Overdose Data to Action is a 3-year cooperative agreement that began in September 2019 and focuses on the complex and changing nature of the drug overdose epidemic and highlights the need for an interdisciplinary, comprehensive, and cohesive public health approach. Funds awarded as part of this agreement will support state, territorial, county, and city health departments in obtaining high quality, more comprehensive, and timelier data on overdose morbidity and mortality and using those data to inform prevention and response efforts.

Florida Department of Health works closely with Federal and State Partners. Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Children and Families (DCF), Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative (FPQC), Florida Hospital Association, and Florida Medical Association. The State Surgeon General (SSG) serves on the Statewide Task Force on Opioid Abuse and its Subcommittee on Prevention and Education.



In addition to state and other federal funds, Florida’s Overdose Data 2 Action (OD2A) grant provides $58.8 million in funding for comprehensive strategies to address opioid misuse and deaths over three years (September 2019 through August 2022).
