Opiate Task Force launches new website
BATAVIA, Ohio – The Clermont County Opiate Task Force is launching a new website -- www.getcleannowclermont.org -- aimed at helping people living with an addiction, their loved ones, and residents of Clermont County who are seeking information about the opiate epidemic that has impacted the county.
The task force was created in 2013 in response to the rising number of overdose deaths related to heroin and prescription pain killers in Clermont County.
“The task force has accomplished many goals during its three-year existence, and the new website is our latest accomplishment. It was developed to provide educational information, resources and hope to individuals and family members living with a substance abuse disorder,” said LeAnn Watson, Associate Director of the Clermont County Mental Health and Recovery Board and co-chairperson of the Opiate Task Force.
The highlights of the new site include resources such as:
List of treatment centers and support groups in the county
List of pharmacies that dispense Narcan
Education resources for talking to children and teens
The Opiate Task Force Strategic Plan
Testimonials from those in recovery and sober
“We have a lot of resources to fight this epidemic already in place in the county. Now you can visit one site and see what’s available. Our meetings are always open to the public, and we encourage anyone to join us at our February meeting and see our new website,” said Watson.
The Opiate Task Force is a dedicated group of community members that include local government agencies, courts, law enforcement, fire and EMS agencies, support and recovery groups, healthcare professionals and private citizens.
