THE RICHLAND COUNTY OPIATE BOARD is a unique broad-based collaboration of people from the treatment, enforcement, and judicial professions. It was formed to develop a proactive response to the Opiate Crisis in Richland County by people who are committed to the reduction of the fatal consequences of opiate abuse through education, response teams, and assistance in finding treatment.
Our mission is to create a system that allows the resident in need to effectively connect with and complete the opiate addiction recovery system in Richland County.
- To better understand the nature of the opiate problem through comprehensive information sharing between members of the board.
- To develop innovative proactive responses to the population of Richland County.
- To focus limited enforcement and intervention activities on identifiable risks. This is to include prevention and community education/awareness.
