Lancaster County Joining Forces:
Working together against the opioid epidemic
Lancaster County Joining Forces is a collection of organizations and individuals who want to save lives and help our neighbors who are struggling with addiction. A partnership between community groups, coalitions, and tasks forces, Joining Forces will work together to strategically impact the number of deaths from opioid addiction in Lancaster County. The Joining Forces Coalition unifies and strengthens the fine work we are doing separately, while also allowing us to identify gaps in services and treatments so we can save more lives together.
The mission of Lancaster County Joining Forces is to coordinate efforts to reduce deaths from opioids and heroin.
The goal of Lancaster County Joining Forces is to utilize evidence-based practices outlined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to address substance misuse and abuse.
