Healthy Oxford Hills helps to coordinate the Oxford County Substance Abuse Task Force which is working to reduce drinking among youth, and lower the risk of binge drinking among young adults (18-25 year olds). In addition, the Task Force is working to combat the issue of prescription drug misuse in the community.
The Task Force knits together parents, teachers, counselors, law enforcement, retailers, worksites and non-profit staff in a coordinated approach to coping with these and related issues. The Task Force meets on a monthly basis. All interested community members are encouraged to attend. Please contact us for more information.
Each year the Task Force, in collaboration with Western Maine Health and Community Concepts, sponsors a day-long conference on Substance Abuse Prevention issues on the first Friday in December.
Please visit out treatment resources page for more information about treatment options.
