Opioid Task Force – CANCELLED
August 12, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am EDT
Meets second Thursday of every month from 9:00 am to 10:30 am. See meeting schedule for dates. The Opioid Task Force, formerly the Prescription Drug Task Force, was first convened in 2012 and consists of stakeholders representing business, education, government, health care, emergency services, law enforcement, and community supports. This task force focuses on high priority concerns relative to opioid misuse, identifying and recommending to the Commission needs and strategies for addressing the problem as well as carrying out appropriate action items. Currently, the task force has three goals for the next two years:
- Reduce the number of people in NH, particularly young adults, who are misusing opioids (non-medical prescription pain relievers and non-pharmaceutical opioids);
- Reduce harm associated with opioid misuse; and
- Increase the availability of treatment and recovery support services for people with opioid use disorders.
