AOD Prevention Partnership

The AOD (Alcohol & Other Drug) Prevention Partnership team in collaboration with Wood County Drug Task Force are addressing the strong alcohol culture and harmful substance use across Wood County. There is a need to strengthen prevention efforts so that the criminal justice system is not used as the means to access treatment facilities for addiction and mental health issues.

Mission: Creating safe and healthy communities for youth and adults by preventing and reducing harmful substance use.

Focus on: Preventing harmful substance use including: Alcohol, Prescription Drugs (Opioids), Heroin, Methamphetamine, and Marijuana
