April 2018

Alcohol Awareness Month
Nationwide, alcohol sends nearly 200,000 young people to the emergency room and just shy of 4,500 kids to an early grave...each year. Needless to say, it's definitely not something to be taken lightly. That's why, during the month of April, it's important to take some time to learn what you can do to reduce the negative impact alcohol can have on our community.

H.O.P.E. 
Sergeant Nate Smith of the H.O.P.E. (Heroin Overdose Prevention & Education) Task Force was the featured speaker at the Dublin ACT Coalition’s quarterly membership meeting in November. This task force was established in 2016. Experienced narcotics and homicide detectives working the H.O.P.E. Task Force are treating opiate overdose scenes as crime scenes; investigating the source of the supply that caused the overdose. In addition, this task force collaborates with treatment providers to refer those with substance use disorders to long term treatment. Prevention and education is key to their long term plan. There was some great discussion among the different sectors of our community! For more information visit their web site: https://sheriff.franklincountyohio.gov/programs/hope-task-force.cfm
