2019 Tackling the Opioid Crisis

A nearly $200 million endowment for OSU’s Center for Wellness and Recovery was awarded as part of the state’s settlement of a lawsuit against Purdue Pharma. The money will fund research and treatment to combat the ongoing addiction epidemic nationwide. 

Launched in November 2017, the OSU Center for Wellness and Recovery is dedicated to providing comprehensive care for those suffering from addiction while advancing treatment through education, research and policy.
