Ohio is currently the hardest-hit state in the U.S.
“Ohio has been one of the states hit hardest by the crisis. Last year, 86% of overdose deaths in the state involved an opioid. In Montgomery County, the situation is particularly dire. Local officials say that more than 800 people will probably die from an opiate overdose there this year, more than double last year’s record of 349 opioid deaths.” – CNN health
A morgue in Montgomery County, Ohio, fills nearly every night with bodies from the heroin epidemic.
The opioid crisis has not discriminated between wealth, race, or gender, it is affecting everyone. Montgomery County has seen record numbers of overdoses and victims who are being falsely led to 30-day treatment centers that are only interested in profits.
