In the United States, Ohio ranks as one of the top-five states with the highest rates of opioid-related overdose deaths. In 2016, there were 4,329 opioid-related overdose deaths in Ohio – more than double the national average at the time, and more than three times that amount in 2010. Between July 2016 and September 2017 – just over a year – Ohio experienced a nearly 3% increase in opioid overdoses. These numbers illustrate a startling reality of how rapidly this epidemic is worsening and highlight our urgent need for solutions.
