MATFORCE has finalized its strategic plan for 2019-2020. With three main goals to achieve, over sixty MATFORCE volunteers met in early January to determine specific action steps the coalition can implement to meet these goals.
- Increase prevention capacity for youth and families;
- Support recovery by increasing the capacity for intervention and treatment;
- Support and advocate for policies that result in the reduction of illicit or harmful drug use.
MATFORCE will continue to implement a public awareness campaign on the risks and harms of drug use, conduct substance abuse education in schools, offer parenting classes and workshops, operate the Yavapai Reentry Project and host multiple projects such as Stand with Me, Be Drug Free Week, youth contests, recovery celebrations, overdose fatality review, and prescription drug take back programs.
