As WYSO reported in June, in Montgomery County heroin overdoses climbed 226 percent from 2010 to 2014.  2015 numbers aren’t out yet, but they are expected to be up as well. With those high rates in mind, a Fairborn Municipal Court judge has started a new program to tackle the problem. Judge Beth Root spearheaded the new drug court program and talked to WYSO’s Jerry Kenney how it works.
