DeWine visits MetroHealth to unveil ‘Recovery Ohio’

11-2-2017DeWine

An average of 14 Ohioans die every day from drug overdoses, and Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine wants to do something about it.

That’s why he visited our main campus this week to unveil Recovery Ohio, a program aimed at tackling the opioid epidemic.

The plan includes 12 initiatives to increase treatment, support law enforcement and expand prevention across the state. Initiatives include doubling Ohio’s drug-treatment capacity, helping employers keep and hire workers who are in recovery, and creating at least 60 new drug courts across the state.

DeWine hopes to get drug companies to pay for the plan.
