What is DGMS?
Don’t Get Me Started is a statewide
public service campaign that speaks to
young adults and their friends and family on issues around opiate substance abuse. In partnership with the Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities (OACBHA) and the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ODADAS), DGMS drives Ohio residents to watch videos and understand how prescription drug addiction as well as other opiates negatively impact the lives of so many Ohioans across the state.

“Recovery - A process of change through which individuals improve their health/wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.”
“It is time to end the discrimination against people who need treatment for chemical addiction. It is time for Congress to deal with our Nation's number one public health problem.”
“The steps we are taking to wipe out this opiate epidemic have to include less opiate prescribing and effective addiction treatment for Ohioans who need it. With support across state government and in the nonprofit and corporate sectors, we will change the course of opiate addiction, whether it’s from painkillers or heroin.”

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
“In a little more than a decade, there’s been a 900 percent increase in the number of prescription opiates prescribed for pain per Ohio resident"
