    COLUMBUS, Ohio — The state of Ohio recently launched an online dashboard that can be used as a resource to combat the growing epidemic.

    Ohio recently launched the Integrated Behavioral Health Dashboard tool as a resource to combat the growing epidemic of drug overdoses, deaths and more. There were more than 5,000 drug overdose deaths in 2021 and the dashboard breaks down numbers by year and county, so organizations like Maryhaven can target areas where addiction and drug use may be an ongoing issue.

    “Data informs our decisions. We can track where we’re seeing these types of substances pop up and give us opportunities to hopefully get out and get messaging out for prevention, get more of our workers out to be able to help those who are in need and be more of a collective force,” said Oyauma Garrison who serves as the CEO of Maryhaven.

    The data shared on the site only goes up to 2021 and can be seen on a month-to-month breakdown.
