LATEST ON COVID-19 AND HARM REDUCTION IN OHIO
A full-time Naloxone Distribution Manager and one or more part-time Naloxone Distribution Specialists will be hired to work in Harm Reduction Ohio’s central Ohio office. Our naloxone distribution program is Ohio’s largest. We distributed more than 9,000 kits and reverse more than 400 overdoses in the first six months of this year.
Hours flexible: 15 to 35 hours per week. Pay starts at $14 to $20 per hour depending on experience. Job located in central Ohio. This is an important position and carries significant responsibility.
We need to keep our focus on the entire state because the highest overdose rates are in small towns and cities, not our biggest counties. Scioto County (Portsmouth) has had the No. 1 in overdose death rate for three straight years.
