How Did This Project Come About?
The Adams County Opioid Council is tasked with distributing funds in Adams County to address funding gaps around addiction treatment, recovery, and prevention programs. Even with the litigation settlement funds currently slated to come into our community, it is not going to be enough to address all of the needs that exist.
Adams County currently stands to receive $25,896,167 over 18 years (which on average is less than $1.5 million per year). It will cost significantly more to address the gaps in addiction, treatment, and recovery prevention programs.
The Council determined this sub-committee was needed in order to explore capital projects that could fill major gaps in services and strategize how to access funding from multiple sources to support them. This is complementary to the dollars that continue to come into Adams County through litigation settlements.
