The Ohio State University College of Social Work will partner with the Ohio Attorney General’s office to evaluate Sobriety, Treatment and Reducing Trauma (START) in 14 Ohio counties affected by the opioid crisis. The CSW will examine what elements are most successful in parents regaining sobriety, maintaining treatment, and reducing future recurrence of child abuse or neglect. Unique to this initiative is a particular focus on improving the well-being of the children affected by parental opioid use. Four CSW faculty members will evaluate Ohio START: Bridget Freisthler, Katie Maguire-Jack, Alicia Bunger, and Susan Yoon.
