DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Community Overdose Action Team hosted its Substance Use Disorder and Recovery: The Emerging Landscape event Thursday at Sinclair Community College.
It brought together the area’s medical professionals to educate them about opioids and pain management in order to reduce the risk of patients developing addictions.
“It’s more of an educational opportunity for our healthcare providers, as well as our treatment providers and our peer recovery supporters, to help increase that collaboration,” says Barb Marsh, Assistant to the Montgomery County Health Commissioner.
Drug overdoses have killed at least 2,500 people in Montgomery County since 2010.Grab the FREE WDTN News App from the Apple Store or Google play. Stay up to date with all the local news, weather and sports as well as live newscasts and events as they happen.
