We are assisting the Southeastern Ohio Legal Services (SEOLS) to identify available secondary data sources that could shed light on how opioid use (in the adult and youth population) is impacting children and youth in the identified area. We are also working with SEOLS to determine what additional information needs to be collected to further define the nature of the problem. Finally, we are also helping develop a framework to monitor the impact of services on the lives of children and youth affected by the crisis. Dr. Lesli K. Johnson is the PI.
