The Overdose Warning Network – OWN 




Chooper's Guide and The Choopers Foundation are pleased to announce the release of our new Mobile (IOS & Android) / Desktop APP - OWN. This is the first realtime overdose incident reporting system of its kind. It provides a platform to enter and track overdose incidents for first responders as well as an epidemiological tool for assessing incidence and prevalence of opioid substance use.

OWN is the first mobile and desktop application for first responders to enter overdose incident data. It will have one data repository that will store opioid overdose incident data which will serve as an epidemiological indicator to provide incidence and prevalence data on opioid overdose data on local, state and national levels. It will be licensed by city/town and keyed by state /town.

The Overdose Warning Network was developed for First Responders including law enforcement, Hospital, Fire and EMS personnel and other individuals administering Naloxone in an opioid overdose event. It is also available for Android and iPhone. Download links for mobile Apps coming before Christmas.
