Scioto County (Portsmouth) is deadliest
Auglaize County (Wapakoneta) is least deadly
This list ranks Ohio counties by their overdose death rates for 2020, as of deaths recorded through April 14, 2021.
Some county deaths rates may increase slightly as additional overdose deaths are reported — about 150 more deaths will be added before the data is finalized this summer. However, the rankings should remain the same.
