A new tool in Saratoga County could help the community with opioid education.

The county unveiled a real-time substance use surveillance dashboard on Tuesday.

It uses data from law enforcement, health care, mental health and public health to provide a comprehensive picture of substance use in the county. 

It will also allow for a faster identification of patterns like a spike in drug use in limited areas at certain times.
