Service Gaps Identified in Heroin/Opiate Epidemic Battle

The Community Overdose Action Team (COAT) has identified four priority areas to help in the fight against the heroin and opioid epidemic. COAT Steering Committee members received an update today on the progress made and what gaps are still pending. Over 259 people from Montgomery County and surrounding areas died from heroin and/or opiates last year.

The priority areas identified were:

  • Access to services and insufficient services
  • Medical detoxification
  • Jail re-entry linkage
  • Transitional and recovery housing


Other future COAT action items include expanding naloxone distribution, expand treatment bed capacity and explore grant opportunities. Currently there are two federal grant opportunities to assist local communities in addressing the epidemic. The state would then disperse the dollars based upon the density of the epidemic in each county to local Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services and Public Health Boards. READ MORE...


Community Overdose Action Team

The Community Overdose Action Team was established to address the opioid/heroin epidemic in Montgomery County. The goals of the team are to stabilize the number of people dying from drug overdoses; then reduce the number of fatal overdoses and finally, reduce the number of people addicted. Montgomery County Alcohol, Drug Addiction & Mental Health Services and Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County are the lead agencies in the effort to combat the epidemic.

The work of the Community Overdose Action Team seeks to identify what services are being offered, look for any existing gaps in services and explore potential new or expanded ways to combat the drug overdose problem. READ MORE...


Collective Impact Collaborative Underway

Montgomery County Commissioner Dan Foley has established a Collective Impact Collaborative to attack the heroin/opioid epidemic that is plaguing our community. The goals are to reduce the number of people dying from drug overdoses and reduce the number of people addicted.

“Confronting this public health/safety crisis will be incredibly difficult, but we must do it together. We must attack this epidemic that is taking the lives of our family members, friends and neighbors and affecting every community in Montgomery County,” said Commissioner Foley
