The final report of the City-County Heroin, Opioid and Cocaine Task Force has been released (November 30, 2018) and includes an attack plan to end the heroin, opioid and cocaine epidemic that has spread across Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, and the region. The solutions offered include a detailed list of recommendations, ongoing prevention initiatives, and community resources including overdose emergency management guides and trauma response team handouts.
