State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) today presented a resolution to Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections Director Gary Mohr for receiving the 2015 CEO's Award for Distinguished Leadership from the Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities. 

"Director Mohr's commitment toward addressing Ohio's drug epidemic by expanding access to treatment and recovery support services make him most deserving of this award," said Peterson. "Under his leadership, Ohio's recidivism rate has dropped to one of the lowest in the nation."
