Jackson County Strategic Planning Initiative Update

County Close-Up

Right now, one of the most pressing issues faced by agencies in the Local Alcohol and Drug Planning Committee is the increasing epidemic of fentanyl
abuse. At the May LADPC meeting, Denise Acker, who has been the point of contact for the Jackson County Strategic Planning Initiative, asked for help in brainstorming ideas on how these agencies could collaborate to make educational information about the danger and prevalence of fentanyl easily accessible to families and youth in our community.
