Will this plan curb opioid overdoses and deaths in Hamilton County?

A program that's showing signs of curbing opioid overdoses in some local communities is expanding across Hamilton County.

On Tuesday, local leaders will officially launch a county-wide Quick Response Team that will work to connect residents who have recently overdosed with addiction treatment services.

In 2017, nearly a dozen people were overdosing each day across Hamilton County, according to county data.

The pace of overdoses has begun to slow in recent months, but officials say now is not the time to back off of efforts to curb the epidemic.

"This is about saving lives and getting people the help they need," said Hamilton County Commissioner Denise Driehaus, who also leads the county's Heroin Coalition.
