Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Services

ICJI's mission is to reduce the incidence and prevalence of substance abuse and addiction among children and adults in Indiana. We support the work of the Governor's Task Force on Drug Enforcement, Treatment, and Prevention, and 92 local coordinating councils (LCCs) to combat substance abuse.

Governor's Commission for a Drug-Free Indiana (DFI)

DFI works in collaboration with 92 local coordinating councils (LCCs) representing all of Indiana's 92 counties. Each year LCCs are charged with implementing comprehensive community plans, which address substance abuse through treatment, prevention and enforcement. DFI lends leadership and expertise in the development of these comprehensive strategies to ensure that resources needed to treat substance abuse are effectively targeted.

DFI consists of 20 members including the governor, or the governor’s designee, four members of the General Assembly (two from the Indiana State Senate and two from the Indiana House of Representatives), and 15 members appointed to a two-year term by the governor.
