Fatal opioid overdoses have increased as a result of COVID-19. Isolation, disruption of routine due to social distancing, and other pandemic-related barriers have made accessing treatment and support more difficult, have had a greater impact on minority health and revealed disparities that have targeted our most vulnerable residents.

A united collaboration of first-responder agencies, public health offices, and healthcare professionals have come together to aggressively step up their efforts in combating this ongoing crisis.

Operation RECOVERY emphasizes the greater urgency to attack substance abuse and opioid addiction. This collaboration of HOPE Task Force, REACT (Columbus Division of Police, Columbus Division of Fire), Franklin County Public Health, Columbus Public Health, Southeast Healthcare and #OSUWexMed concentrates its efforts on:

• Conducting Narcan use trainings
• Distributing Narcan
• Distributing Fentanyl test strips
• Conducting face-to-face follow ups for those with Substance Use Disorder
• Linking individuals with treatment and resources
