The Harrison County Family Resource Network held the 11th round of the Governor's Regional Substance Abuse Task Force meeting on Thursday.
Lawmakers, police officers, parents, people in recovery and recovery providers were just some of the types of people who came to help prioritize recommendations to stop the drug problem. These ideas, which focus on prevention, intervention and treatment, will then be sent to the Governor by way of the Governor's Advisory Council.
For the past two years, these recommendations have resulted in significant legislation and funding for substance abuse.
Everyone involved said this is a good way to find out what works on a local level and where more assistance is needed.
