Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, Sen. Rob Portman, and county and health officials announced on Thursday the start of the Hamilton County Narcan Distribution Collaborative, a program that will increase naloxone supply in Hamilton County by over 400 percent. Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram said the project has not been attempted before in the United States. The initiative will increase Hamilton County's naloxone supply from 7,000 units to 30,000 units. “I don’t have to tell anyone in this room that opioid abuse disorder has become an enormous problem nationally, statewide and here in Hamilton County,” Ingram said.
