  • Treatment: Analyze available resources for treatment and identify best practices for treating drug addiction. 
  • Prevention: Identify programs and/or policies which are effective in preventing drug abuse, including early youth intervention programs

The Task Force will meet monthly for the next three months – on September 16th, October 15th, and November 19th. The meetings will take place in the north, south, and central regions and will include testimony from local experts and families impacted by the epidemic. The Task Force will provide recommendations to the Governor throughout the process of meetings, and will prepare a final report of all findings and recommendations.
