The Onslow County Overdose Fatality Review (OFR) program conducts confidential reviews of resident drug overdose deaths to identify opportunities for improvement or intervention. Fatality review is a collaborative process that brings agencies together to share and discuss the circumstances leading up to the death of an individual and the response to that death.
