Stories of Opioids and Ohio: Join the Conversation

By |2019-06-11T06:00:37-04:00June 11, 2019|

hiding-1209131_1920Every day, more than 115 people die in the United States after overdosing on opioids. And Ohio has been disproportionately stricken. In 2017, it had the second-highest percentage of overdose deaths per population, second only to West Virginia.

And when you hear about the opioid epidemic, you hear about those who have died or are addicted. You hear about overfilled emergency rooms and overworked safety services. But how often do you hear about the children who are affected?

No facet of our community has been untouched by this crisis, and that includes our kids.

At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, at our Main Branch, we’ll host a community conversation where we’ll discuss how schools, social and health care services, and communities can support children after experiencing the trauma of addiction in their families.

Dr. Berkeley Franz and Dr. Daniel Skinner, two professors from Ohio University, will lead the conversation. Everyone is welcome to participate or simply attend. Refreshments will be provided.

We do request that people register to attend. To sign up, call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.
