About The Data

Data for this report is collected from a wide variety of sources. QRT data is collected from each individual QRT Team (Avon, Avon Lake, Elyria, Lorain, Lorain County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO)) with the help and facilitation from the clinical teams at Fireland and LCADA Way. Warm Hand-Off data is collected from Let’s Get Real (LGR). Safe Medication and Storage data is collected through mailed-in postcards to the Mental Health, Addiction and Recovery Services (MHARS) Board. Overdose data (non-fatal and fatal) is collected through the Overdose Detection Mapping Program (OD Maps). Overdose mortality data is collected from the Lorain County Coroners Office. All data is updated/collected on a monthly basis. For demographic, outcome and reach data, QRT data and WHO data is only included IF contact was made with an overdose survivor. Overdose data is collected from the police/EMS departments that are signed up on the software program and are willing to participate. The number of overdoses presented is not a complete representation of all the overdoses occurring in Lorain County.
