Who We Are

Seneca_Opiate Task Force - NEW logo
The Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties is statutorily empowered to plan, develop, fund, administer and evaluate the local system of mental health and addiction services within the Board district.   The Board is to serve as the hub of the local communities and facilitate partnerships and relationships with organizations throughout the district in order to address community needs and to respond to crisis situations.  The opioid epidemic was considered a crisis situation and therefore, the Board took the lead to address the  problem by forming a task force in each of the three counties within the Board district.   The Seneca County Opiate Task Force was formed in the spring of 2015 as a result of the number of overdoses that were occurring in Seneca County due to opioids.  The initiative was led by the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Seneca, Ottawa, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties along with the Seneca County Common Pleas Court.  The task force aims to bring the necessary treatment, recovery and prevention resources to the community in order to prevent the overdoses.  Efforts initiated under the task force have included the availability of treatment at the local jail, Narcan training, recovery housing, joint recovery drug court, fatality review committee and numerous educational and awareness events.  Current membership includes the Board, law enforcement, treatment and prevention providers, hospitals, health department and the local jail administration.  The Board acts as the lead agency and considers the task force as the local  county opioid hub to combat opioid addiction as required under the Ohio Revised Code 340.30.
