On November 20 2015, The Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities (OACBHA) hosted a day-long meeting for Ohio’s County Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Boards (ADAMH) and their community partners on addressing Ohio’s opiate epidemic as it progresses from prescription pain pills, to heroin (which is now being cut with illicit-Fentanyl). The meeting highlighted two communities that have responded to the Fentanyl-cut heroin outbreak in their communities, working with law enforcement and other community partners who are at the crossroads of drug distribution routes, treatment services, and recovery supports. The meeting also highlighted the work of state partners and what they are doing to address the opiate epidemic.
For you review, please find below the PowerPoint presentations that were distributed during the meeting.
