From the publisher: Ohio Opioid Education Alliance support critical to solving pervasive epidemic


Last June, the Alcohol Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County, along with business, civic and community partners, announced the formation of the Ohio Opioid Education Alliance and launched a multimillion-dollar media campaign designed to engage parents and caregivers in preventing the use of opioids among our community's youth. You are likely familiar with the Denial Ohio advertising campaign.

The Ohio Opioid Education Alliance is the result of the Franklin County Opiate Action Plan, which was created by ADAMH at the direction of the city of Columbus and Franklin County officials. The plan was adopted in 2017 as a broad strategy to begin to tackle the opioid crisis.
