How can you address the opioid crisis?

The opioid crisis we are facing is worsening. More than 2 million Americans abuse opioids, and in 2016 alone, over 42,000 Americans died of an opioid overdose. That’s 42,000 lives that could have been saved. 42,000 friends, family members and coworkers. 42,000 lives that matter.

We are here to raise awareness on the rising opioid epidemic our country is facing, as well as our very own communities here in the Van Wert, Paulding and surrounding counties. Our goal is to increase awareness of the dangers of opioids, reduce the number of individuals using these drugs inappropriately, and most importantly, let those who have been directly or indirectly affected know that they are not alone. They have not only a team of local professionals available to help them, but a community of supporters.

How can you get local support?

As the death toll from opioid overdose increases, be a part of the solution, not the problem.

Whether you are directly affected by the use of opioids, know someone who has been affected, or want to help raise awareness to the opioid epidemic, we are here to help. If you or someone you know is in crisis or needs immediate intervention, please call 800-567-4673 or text 4HOPE to 741741.

We have a team of licensed professionals who are here and ready to help.
