12.21.16 - Continuing Our Work Against The Opioid Epidemic

 

A recent report from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation claims Ohio is leading the nation in overdose deaths. Unfortunately, this report only confirms what most know from experience: the heroin epidemic is tearing our families and neighborhoods apart. It is hard to find a person who has not been touched by the effects of this crisis. It has shaken our preconceived notions of what addiction looks like.

10.26.16 - Guest Column From Representative Anthony DeVitis: Solution To Ohio's Opioid Epidemic Starts With Combined Efforts
