DeWine earmarks $12M for Ohio START


Children and parents impacted by substance abuse will get more help thanks to a proposed increase in the 2020-21 Ohio executive budget. Gov. Mike DeWine wants to invest $12 million to expand the Ohio START (Sobriety, Treatment, and Reducing Trauma) program.

Ohio START, which began about 10 years ago, offers trauma counseling to children who are victims of a parent’s drug abuse and also assists those parents with their path to recovery.

The program shows signs of success. A study revealed that parents involved in the program had twice the sobriety rate and fewer kids returned to foster care.
