Ohio leads the nation in opioid overdose deaths and the number of fentanyl-related drug overdose deaths throughout Ohio continues to increase each year – from 84 in 2013, to 503 in 2014, to 1,155 in 2015
An average of eight people die as a result of a drug overdose each day in Ohio – one death every three hours; and opiate prescription rates have decreased, but heroin, fentanyl and carfentanyl continue to be more and more accessible.
