Maryland Lt. Governor Launches Heroin And Opioid Emergency Task Force Website

Posted:
 ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford launched a section of his official state website dedicated to the Maryland Heroin and Opiod Emergency Task Force. The website comes just before the Task Force's first Regional Summit scheduled for Tues. March 17 in Cecil County.

"The purpose of the website is to provide the public with information on who makes up our task force, the work they are doing, and how Marylanders can get involved with their efforts and participate in our regional summits," said Paul Beatty, spokesman for the Lt. Governor. "We will hold a summit in each region of the state. Getting the public's input on this crisis and hearing from people who have been affected by the disease of addiction is vital to the success of our task force."

The Heroin and Opiod Emergency Task Force and the Inter-Agency Heroin and Opiod Coordinating Council were created in February as part of  Governor Larry Hogan's plan to combat the heroin epidemic in Maryland. The Governor tasked Lt. Governor Rutherford with the job of bringing together stakeholders to do so.

The Heroin and Opioid Emergency Task Force is comprised of addiction experts, law enforcement, medical professionals, and government officials.

The Heroin and Opioid Emergency Task Force website can be found at: http://www.ltgovernor.maryland.gov/.
