  • In 2012, five Ohioans died every day from unintentional drug overdose, or one every 5 hours.
  • Unintentional drug overdose continues to be the leading cause of injury-related death in Ohio, ahead of motor vehicle traffic crashes, suicide and falls. This trend began in 2007 and continues through 2012.


 Please join Greater Cincinnati Health Council to see what they can do to help prevent these statistics from growing in our communities.
