'It's a disease': Ohio launches first statewide overdose data dashboard


CINCINNATI — A first-of-its-kind database launched in Ohio to better track and report data on overdose deaths and other substance-use-related measures.

Gov. Mike DeWine announced the new public system Tuesday, which makes behavioral health data from multiple agencies accessible in a single location. It provides a county- and state-level picture of long-term trends in opioid use disorder, overdoses and treatment in all 88 Ohio counties.
