Heroin and Other Drugs

LA CROSSE HEROIN & OTHER ILLICIT DRUG TASK FORCE 

The goal of this effort is to create a self-sustaining coalition or task force of community stakeholders to identify and implement community-based strategies that reduce the public health burden of heroin and other illicit substance use in La Crosse County. Our intention to pilot this initiative is to:

  • Save and protect lives
  • Reduce illegal and prescription drug substance misuse
  • Improve overdose interventions
  • Improve early intervention to treatment and recovery
  • Provide education to the community about heroin, meth and prescription drugs
  • Reduce the burden on the Criminal Justice Programs
