The Clearfield-Jefferson Heroin Task Force, Inc. was formed in 2004 by a group of concerned citizens in response to the alarming rise in the use of heroin in our local communities. The trend continues to this day. Heroin is now the number two drug of choice for people entering into treatment in our region. Heroin use, as any addiction, not only affects the individual user, but also family members, children, employers, businesses, the health care profession and our courts to name a few.
The Mission of the Task Force is to raise awareness in Clearfield and Jefferson County Communities regarding the use of heroin. In addition the Task Force seeks to provide education and important information regarding the disease of addiction. As the Task Force is a private non-profit, with no paid employees, 99% of any money raised, goes back in the communities of Clearfield and Jefferson Counties, with very little retained for operations (filing of tax documents, postage, paper etc.)
