Amid a nationwide opioid crisis, Ohio’s Butler County in particular has suffered substantially. Butler witnessed a record 192 drug overdose deaths in 2016 and is currently on pace to shatter that statistic in 2017. Its coroner’s office saw 96 fatal overdoses during the first three months of the year, including 80 involving opiates, officials announced recently.

Accidental overdoses killed more than 4,000 people statewide last year, up 36 percent from 2016 when Ohio led the nation with respect to fatal overdoses.
