COLUMBUS, Ohio - A report containing 15 recommendations for tackling Ohio's opiate addiction epidemic is made public by a panel appointed by Ohio lawmakers.
After school programs for schools, and teaching about the dangers of drugs at home. Two of the recommendations from the Joint Study Committee on Drug Use Prevention Education. Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the findings at the statehouse.
"It outlines really what our study committee thinks should be done and we hope that this would be approached in every single community in the state of Ohio," DeWine says.
The joint study committee says some direction from the Ohio Department of Education is necessary, but they recommend the decision on how to educate students should be left to the local districts.
