The Inject Hope Regional Collaborative brings community leaders in the areas of public health, health care, public safety, prevention and treatment and job and family services together across Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana to address the heroin and opiate epidemic that is threatening the well-being and safety of our entire community. Through the development and implementation of a comprehensive effort, the Regional Collaborative creates a unified foundation that is able to scale the most successful efforts, enabling collaboration and coordination to most thoroughly and effectively leverage local resources.
The regional effort addresses four focus areas:
- Boosting prevention and public education efforts
- Increasing and improving access to treatment
- Reducing the number of fatal overdoses/reducing the harm and consequences
- Controlling the supply
