The opioid epidemic continues to ravage America, with overdoses increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic, and many people may know someone who has been affected.

“Addiction touches everyone. Everyone knows somebody,” said April Caudill, executive director and founder of the HOPE Resource Center on the Hilltop.

The Dispatch asked drop-in centers and other recovery services in Columbus how people can help them. Whether it’s donating clothing or food, volunteering time or offering financial support, anyone can make an impact on those affected by the drug epidemic. Here’s how:

Where it is: 2596 Sullivant Ave. on Columbus’ Hilltop

What it is: A drop-in center for men and women in need and those in active addiction, it offers food, clothing and connects people with other resources, including referrals to addiction treatment and recovery services if they want them.
