The epidemic is real. Ohioans continue to die from drug overdoses at a record-setting pace. Death from drug overdoses is now the leading cause of death in people ages 22-50. Ohio continues to be one of the nation’s leaders in the death-toll rate. Locally, Franklin County has realized a 343% increase in deaths between 2003-2016. Whitehall, per capita, has been one of the hardest hit cities in the county with overdose rates five times higher than the Franklin County average.
