The mission of the Mayor’s Substance Misuse Task Force is to provide education, resources, and hope for those affected by substance misuse.
Our goals are to:
Create awareness of the growing substance misuse crisis and its impact on individuals, families, law enforcement and the community.
Provide resources for counseling, treatment and recovery options.
Promote ongoing education, prevention strategies and partnerships with affiliated organizations.
Our vision is to help people by talking about something that is uncomfortable. We want to be a witness to the fact that recovery is possible and there are people and resources willing and able to help.
