Heroin Task Force

In recognition of the toll the heroin epidemic is taking on the community,
Delaware County Council, the District Attorney and Delaware County agencies formed the
Delaware County Heroin Task Force in 2012 to address this public health concern.

The mission of the Heroin Task Force is to provide young people, parents and educators with information regarding the destructive and addictive nature of heroin and abused prescription drugs.
