Fentanyl Deaths Skyrocket in Northeast Ohio; Business Re-Entry Summit
People are dying and they are dying in clusters here in Northeast Ohio. The opioid epidemic has taken another, deadlier turn. Fetanyl, 50-times more powerful than heroin, is taking lives quickly and has been labeled a public health crisis in Cuyahoga County.
Plus, an estimated 20,000 people are released from Ohio's prisons each year. For these men and women, the key to re-starting their lives will hinge on their ability to re-join society. Critical to that success will be finding a job.
