The Governor's Initiative on Substance Abuse

Task Forces

Per Executive Order 5-11, the Governor's Substance Abuse Task Forces are assembled by the Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities within the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources to combat the growing problem of substance abuse and addiction throughout West Virginia.

The Regional Substance Abuse Task Forces are open to the public and are intended to include West Virginia citizens from all walks of life: parents, teachers, service providers, law enforcement, elected officials, and anyone else interested in joining together to combat the problem. Regional Task Forces have been charged with moving from talking about the problem to identifying priorities and developing strategies to address the problem of substance abuse in West Virginia.
