The rise in the misuse of prescription medication has emerged as an epidemic crossing the lifespan. This public health issue has created target areas of concern impacting young adults dealing with addiction
compounded by the increase in fatalities for middle aged Ohioans. As we create a population-based approach in regards to dealing with this epidemic, increasing awareness to the prevention strategies on
the local level is essential.
