Ashtabula County participating in national study to reduce opioid-related overdose deaths


Ashtabula County was selected as one of 67 communities across Ohio, Kentucky, Massachusetts and New York to participate in a national study to reduce opioid-related overdose deaths.

The HEALing Communities Study was launched by the National Institutes of Health and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. It is being led in Ohio by the Ohio State University, with additional support from Case Western Reserve University, University of Cincinnati, Ohio University and University of Toledo.

Ashtabula County’s Substance Abuse Leadership Team, in conjunction with the Ashtabula County Mental Health Recovery Services Board, is responsible for implementing the study in the county.
