An educational series about drug overdose prevention and education kicks off in Fostoria this week. The Review-Times reports the H.O.P.E organization is presenting a program called, “It All Starts with One Pill.” The program takes place at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Fostoria Intermediate Elementary School.

Amie Hathaway is H.O.P.E’s president. She tells the newspaper that prescriptions for painkillers are a gateway to opioid addiction so the group wanted to start there.

Orman Hall is a public health analyst for the Heroin Response Project and is scheduled to speak. Hall has worked with the Ohio Supreme Court, overseeing the development of drug courts.
