Substance use disorders, and the negative ripple effect they cause in Hamilton County, is an urgent matter to resolve.
Some addicts survive for another day, while many others don’t. Some will get clean, short-term, only to begin using again. This ultimately will lead to more problems- such as job loss, family issues, arrest, imprisonment, and even death from drug overdose.
