About the Task ForceOpioid Task Force flyer

Lead by the Carbon - Monroe - Pike Drug and Alcohol Commission, the Pike County Substance Abuse Task Force meets monthly to address the issue of addiction, reduce the stigma associated with addiction, and improve the health of all residents.

The Task Force has collaborated with the University of Pittsburgh to create a three-year strategic plan that can benefit from contributions and perspectives from all members of our community. The primary areas of our focus include:

  • Prevention
  • Reducing stigma
  • Enhancing the continuum of care in the treatment and recovery process
  • Improving public safety issues associated with substance use and related overdoses
  • Decreasing supply of illicit drugs
  • Implementing harm reduction strategies
  • Increasing coordination between law enforcement and healthcare/human service entities to support recovery from addiction and improve the wellness of our communities
