Sobecki Votes to Address Drug Overdoses, Children’s Behavioral Health Issues

State Rep. Lisa Sobecki (D-Toledo) last week joined her colleagues in the Ohio House in voting to pass House Bill (HB) 10, creating the Office of Drug Policy to help coordinate statewide and local efforts to combat drug addiction and overdose issues; and House Bill (HB) 12 creating the Children’s Behavioral Health Prevention Network, which will create a new approach to addressing children’s mental and behavioral health issues.

“My district has one of the highest drug overdose rates in the state, so supporting HB 10 is personal to me,” said Sobecki. “Through the Office of Drug Policy, we can build a better atmosphere of cooperation and coordination to ensure each person affected by addiction—whether they are the victims of addiction or their families—can receive the help they need and have the chance to achieve the Ohio Promise of a better life and a brighter future.”

Regarding the passage of HB 12, Sobecki said, “This legislation helps us to step in early and prevent behavioral issues instead of reacting to them. Additionally, it protects our communities’ most valuable resource: our children. HB 12 lives up to our promise to protect children and families.”

Both bills now head to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
