Centre County Heroin and Opioid, Prevention and Education (HOPE) Initiative
In May 2016, a Memorandum of Understanding was executed, formally creating the Centre County Heroin and Opioid Prevention and Education (HOPE) Initiative. Members of the HOPE Initiative include those from the prevention, treatment, and recovery community; agencies involved in the Criminal Justice System; and members of the community affected by addiction.
The Centre County HOPE Initiative works to eliminate substance abuse, drug overdoses, and drug overdose deaths in Centre County.
The Coalition and its members will achieve this goal through dedicated outreach, effective education, raising awareness, and supporting the availability of recovery support and treatment options to all members of our community.
The Centre County HOPE Initiative meets every month at the Centre County Correctional Facility in the Community Room.
