Substance Use Task Force

clyde minaret


Mono County’s Substance Use Task Force is a collaborative gathering of public and private sector community partners with a goal of reducing the adverse effects of harmful substance use. We seek to enhance prevention, treatment and harm reduction services and to reduce stigma.   


A collaborative and cohesive community group that promotes understanding of substance use as a disease and improving treatment and harm reduction access and strategies.


Promote health and dignity for all.
