The Crisis by the Numbers in Virginia

Powered by FAACT

Virginia’s Framework for Addiction Analysis and Community Transformation (FAACT) allows government and community health organizations to better understand and address the opioid and addiction crisis through data. Using data from sources such as Virginia State Police, Emergency Medical Services, and Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, FAACT provides insightful, high-level analyses that enable a more effective, data-driven response to the Fentanyl Epidemic. With FAACT, Virginia decision makers have the resources required to identify people at risk for developing substance use disorder, and in turn, improve allocations of scarce treatment and recovery resources.

To curb the crisis, we must all have access to accurate data about the effects of fentanyl and opioids across the Commonwealth. The dashboard below displays the most up-to-date information available from four Virginia agencies: Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME), Virginia State Police (VSP), Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and Department of Forensic Science (DFS).
