The Ohio Department of Health along with the partnership of several state agencies and boards are launching the campaign “Take Charge Ohio: Manage Pain and Prevent Medication Abuse.” The campaign  is a public awareness campaign directed at opioid prescribers, their patients and the general public. The campaign will educate prescribers about safe opioid prescribing practices and non-opioid pain management therapies, and provide tools and resources they can use with their patients, including brochures, fliers and posters. ODH and GCOAT are excited about this campaign’s potential to encourage and empower prescribers, their patients and the public to genuinely “take charge” to safely manage pain and prevent pain medication abuse.
