Lancaster County Joining Forces:

Working together against the overdose epidemic

Lancaster County Joining Forces is a collection of organizations and individuals working to save lives and help our neighbors who are living with addiction. A partnership between organizations, coalitions, and individuals, Joining Forces serves as a convener and connector.

With Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health’s support as the backbone organization, the Joining Forces collaborative regularly reviews data. This data helps key leaders in the community understand who is at increased risk of overdose and what interventions are needed to prevent those deaths.

Though Lancaster Joining Forces does not offer direct services, we do have free naloxone available.

Direct services and supports for children and families are offered through Joining Forces for Children and Joining Forces for Prevention.
