Ohio Farm Bureau joins Opioid Education Alliance

The opioid crisis is devastating countless communities across the state, as Ohioans are now more than two and a half times as likely to die from a drug overdose than a car accident. In fact, Ohio ranks third in the nation for opioid overdose deaths with more than 5,000 Ohioans dying from overdose in 2017 alone.

Healthy, drug-free residents are important to a thriving community and economy, which is why Ohio Farm Bureau has joined the Opioid Education Alliance. The alliance, which is composed of more than 40 business, civic and government organizations, has a mission to spread opioid misuse prevention messages through its Denial, OH campaign. The Denial, OH campaign features public service announcements that are set in the fictional town of Denial, Ohio, where residents are “in denial” that their children could become addicted to opioids.

Check out the PSAs, and educate yourself, your family and friends on proper prescription opioid use and disposal.
