Opiate Task Force
- Mobilizing the community toward lifestyle risk reduction
- To create an environment that empowers the community to make low-risk choices
- Prevent alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse from reducing the quality of life in our community
- To empower the community to create an environment of low-risk choices
- Substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion
We believe that the most effective prevention efforts have developed around the Lifestyle Risk Reduction model of prevention. We are aware that everyone is at risk of developing health and/or impairment problems from the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
We believe substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion fosters the health and safety of individuals and communities.
We believe in and have adopted the Lifestyle Risk Reduction Model and the Asset Model as the most appropriate means through which to deliver substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion.
The Community Partnership will utilize the most effective strategies to deliver substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion as demonstrated in the Ohio Taxonomy of Prevention (i.e. education, environmental, community-based process, alternatives, information dissemination and/or problem identification and referral).
