CLEVELAND - Fake OxyContin, disguised as the potent animal sedative Carfentanil, has been found in Northeast Ohio.
The morphine-like pain killer Oxycontin is just one of a number of opioids fueling a substance use crisis in the U.S. federal health officials say. And successful treatment for the substance use disorder can be costly.
The opioid epidemic has crippled communities across the United States, spurred a public health crisis, and is responsible for nearly 100 overdose deaths each day.
Opioid abuse is also hurting America’s job market.
When does toll of opioid crisis fuel change?
We know numbers can be numbing. Take the number 4,000. That is roughly how many are estimated to have died last year from drug overdoses in my home state of Ohio.
Berea police patrolman Dave Kammerman is part of the "Safe Passages" program that has police officers helping people addicted to drugs get treatment rather than arresting them. Kammerman says it has changed his outlook on life and is the best thing he has ever done as a police officer.
