Summit County Opiate Task Force UPDATE
The Summit County Opiate Task Force is a group of key individuals and organizations committed to reducing the tragic consequences of opiate abuse in Summit County through education, collaboration, and the wise use of available resources.

All of us can play a role in helping to end this lethal epidemic.
The Opiate Task Force is planning a FREE half day workshop on October 30th, 2014, to educate our community about the epidemic, available resources, and ways you can help. Additional information and registration for "Pills to Dope... a Slippery Slope," is available here.
A new video is now available as part of the Parents360 Rx program developed by the Partnership at Drugfree.org to increase parents’ knowledge of substance abuse and improve parents' confidence in their ability to speak with teens about substance abuse, particularly prescription drugs.
Treatment: If you or someone you know is addicted to opiates or heroin, help is available 24/7 by calling the ADM Crisis Center, 330-996-7730.
Police: Contact your local police department if you suspect someone is involved with drug trafficking.
Dispose of unwanted / outdated prescription medications: Getting rid of older, unused medications from your home helps ensure they won’t find their way into the wrong hands. Learn how to dispose of your older, unused and/or expired medications safely and properly.
