After years of battling opiate addiction, Daniel Weidle passed away from an overdose after he was repeatedly denied access to the life
saving medication used to treat his illness.  Daniel was a deeply loved son, father, brother, and friend, taken far too soon by a disease that can, and should be treated.  Each day we lose 129 more people like Daniel as our nation struggles with the opiate epidemic.

Opioid Reform Initiative is now introduced in the Ohio 132nd General Assembly known as Daniels Law House Bill 167.

  • It will now codify the governor’s executive order which is seven days’ worth of opioids at 30 MED’s a day for adults.
  • It will put a hard stop for prescription opioids in a primary care setting.
  • It will start to phase out chronic pain patients in a primary care setting.
  • It will expand treatment options for patients by utilizing services like telemedicine.
  • It will require treatment providers to consult with and inform patients of all FDA approved MAT’s. This will ensure that patients are better informed of their treatment options.
  • It will prohibit a doctor from ordering or prescribing opioids to a patient who does not consent to the use of opioids.

This is a Grass Roots Campaign effort for reform. To improve treatment availability and options for the disease of addiction. To establish opioid prescribing guidelines that are consistent and monitored. To provide online educational tools for addiction prevention, treatment and support. We need your SUPPORT and your VOICE in order to achieve these goals. There will be a time in the future we will contact you to organize this effort. If you have services to offer, we welcome your resource.
