The mission of the task force is to determine the extent to which Berks County is being affected by the non-prescriptive use of opioids and the use of heroin through the examination of its devastating effects, both personal and societal, and to set recommendations that address the prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery supports of local residents that suffer from opioid addiction. 


Identify opportunities to remediate the opioid crisis through the provision of evidence based / best practice strategies and resources.
