Ohio AG allocates $3M to fund opioid response teams

Ohio's attorney general's office will administer $3 million in grant funding to develop or expand Drug Abuse Response Teams and Quick Response Teams in the state.

These teams, which aid drug overdose survivors in the recovery process, consist of law enforcement officers and substance use treatment providers, among other stakeholders.  

"People who survive an overdose need support to overcome addiction, and the DART and QRT teams that are already at work in Ohio have been successful in helping many people move toward long-term recovery," said Mike Dewine, Ohio's attorney general. "We have to come together as a state to fight addiction, and with these new grants, we can help even more Ohioans."

The attorney general's office will begin accepting grant applications on July 19.
