DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost reports a spike in opioid overdoses in 2020, and says people need to refocus on preventing overdose deaths. 

The numbers show overdoses spiked in the spring of 2020, when much of the state was first pushed into social isolation. There was another bounce in June, though right now numbers are trending downward. Still, the attorney general and advocates for people overcoming addiction stress these issues aren’t going away, and we all need to remain vigilant.
