York County Heroin Task force

This task force has been created with the intention of forming a partnership of community, medical and government agencies dedicated to reducing the abuse of heroin in our communities; to educating our citizens of the prevalence of the heroin problem, the signs and symptoms of addiction, and the resources available; to reducing drug related deaths and crime in our communities, through public education, advocacy, media, law enforcement and legislation.   For more information, please visit the Task Force’s Website.

Update on YADAC Funding for FY 2014-2015

Please be advised that, as a result of continued and significant increase in the demand for York/Adams Drug & Alcohol Commission (YADAC) funding for drug and alcohol inpatient treatment level of care (that is: short and long term residential; and halfway house), it has become necessary for YADAC to limit these services for the 2014/2015 fiscal year.
