Prevent Overdose RI
Prevent Overdose RI

This website was born out of Governor Raimondo's executive order to create new task force and develop a publicly-visible dashboard website to address the current opioid overdose epidemic.

Centers of Excellence for Opioid Use Disorders

The Centers of Excellence (COE) were created by the Governor's Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task force and are a cornerstone piece of Governor Raimondo's plan to combat the opioid crisis. These Centers provide assessments and treatment for opioid dependence, offer expedited access to care and serve as a resource for community-based providers.

A multi-disciplinary staff, including peer professionals, work together to provide patient-centered care that addresses all of an individual's treatment needs. COEs also provide counseling, vocational support, as well as FDA-approved medications for the effective treatment of opioid use disorders (methadone, buprenorphine products and naltrexone). You do not need an appointment to be treated at a COE and you do not stay overnight. Click here for a list of COEs.
