In the first 9 months of operation, staff at our two Overdose Prevention Centers (OPCs) intervened in over 603 overdoses. The OPCs were utilized more than 45,773 times, enrolled over 2,085 participants into the care of our program, and diverted over 1,472,137 units of hazardous waste from parks and public spaces in New York City.
By preventing 911 calls, ambulance transport, emergency room visits, and admissions, we have helped save New York City an estimated $13.3 million. Most importantly, NOT A SINGLE PERSON DIED while using in our consumption rooms. The evidence is in – safer consumption sites work.
NYC’s Overdose Prevention Centers are operated using private donations and foundation funds only. City and State dollars cannot be used to operate the OPCs at this time. We need your help!
OnPoint NYC will use 100% of funds raised to continue saving lives in our OPCs.
We call you to seize this historic moment to match what we raise.
