About The Data


A key finding from the Governor Ivey's Alabama Opioid Overdose and Addiction Council was the need to establish a Central Data Repository (CDR) so that all opioid data could be evaluated holistically. The CDR is meant to hold data and distribute results to partner agencies and the public, thus allowing for rapid response to outbreaks of overdoses and other opioid-related events, as well as providing a framework to measure the progress of initiatives in place to address the crisis.
