Rumble Forty police agencies in Ohio will receive some much needed cash to help fight the opioid epidemic. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine gave $3 million to agencies with quick response teams - also known as drug abuse response teams - and one of those is Colerain Township. Colerain plans to use the $50,000 it gets over the next two years to work its quick response team an extra day during the week. Up to now, the team has worked one day a week - usually Wednesdays – to make contact with those struggling with addiction "We go up and follow up on anyone in Colerain Township that has been revived with NARCAN following an overdose," said Nan Frank, CEO of the Addiction Services Council.
