The Opiate Task Force is a group of organizations and individuals united in our commitment to reduce the tragic consequences that stem from abuse and addiction in Lake County, Ohio. We believe that through collaboration and wise use of resources we can make a difference.
The Task Force was started by the Lake County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board. Membership spans courts, law enforcement, first responders, education, and the offices of the Lake County Coroner, General Health District, and Department of Job and Family Services.
