The New Philadelphia City Health Department + COVID and Addiction

We've all been navigating uncharted territory during the pandemic. Despite some misconceptions in the community, the New Philadelphia City Health Department is in the same boat. Listen to this episode to learn how the Health Department is working tirelessly to remain current with the constantly changing information and data regarding COVID-19.

Also, with a 283% increase in drug overdose deaths during the first 6 months of 2020, the Health Department is battling an additional public health crisis in our community. Learn about opiate addiction and the solution that helps people regain control of their lives.

We must understand that addiction affects every person differently, and there's still much to learn. As a community, it's time to realize that judgment closes doors; compassion opens them.

  • Vickie Ionno, RN - Health Commissioner
  • Nichole Bache, RN - Director of Nursing
