Hospitals rate drug abuse potential in patients

Dayton Daily News, December 27, 2011
Local hospitals have begun assessing their patients' prescription drug histories and their potential to abuse those drugs, part of a broader effort to end a local and statewide overdose epidemic. Montgomery County has an unusually high accidental overdose death rate of 23 per 100,000 people, twice the rate of Ohio's other urban counties. Last year, 127 people died in the county from unintentional drug overdoses.
