Local Efforts for Public Awareness

Clackamas County Rx/Opioid Task Force

The Clackamas County Opioid Task Force is a community-based interdisciplinary coalition made up of stakeholders, community organizations, and partners working on opioid-related issues within Clackamas County.  One of the goals of the Task Force is to build infrastructure across disciplines, align efforts and collaborate to decrease harms and death due to opioids and other substances in our community.

The Task Force has identified four priority strategies, one of which is Public Awareness and Education. The Public Awareness and Education workgroup plans to engage the community and  drive messages that will help decrease the stigma that surrounds addiction and opioid use disorder.
