MCHHS Narcan Distribution Program
Thanks to a Financial Assistance Award from Oregon Health Authority, Marion County Health & Human Services (MCHHS) has established a Narcan Distribution Program. The primary objective of the program is to coordinate with local law enforcement, first responders, and treatment services to order, distribute, and track supplies of Narcan Nasal Spray. We see this program as a unique and important opportunity to work with local partners to make our communities safer and healthier.

Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP)
As a part of our Distribution Program, agencies are highly encouraged to register for Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area's (HIDTA) ODMAP program. ODMAP provides real-time overdose surveillance and links first responders and other agencies to a mapping tool that tracks overdoses and helps stimulate real-time response and strategic analysis across jurisdictions.
ODMAP serves many important public health and safety functions, including:
- Provides near real-time suspected overdose data across jurisdictions to support public safety and public health efforts.
- Functions as a highly accurate tracking system for Naloxone use and overdose outcomes. This is data that is traditionally hard to find in one system.
- Can serve as an early warning system for when potentially lethal batches of opioids (fentnyl) are headed to our region. Users can create tailored Spike Alert Systems for any area they choose.
- Can help bring agencies together across jurisdictions to develop opioid/drug overdose response plans.
