HUDSON — The Columbia County Board of Supervisors recently adopted a response plan to combat the local opioid crisis.

The Columbia County Opioid Epidemic Response Plan was unanimously passed by the Board of Supervisors at a full board meeting April 12.

The plan defines the nature and extent of the opioid problem in the county, includes an inventory of existing and emerging efforts to address the problem, such as work groups, school-based prevention programs, public sector initiatives, law enforcement and criminal justice efforts, harm reduction programs and other new and pending efforts, and offers recommendations to curb the epidemic.

The plan was drafted by members of the Opiate Subcommittee, which was formed in September, and is comprised of county supervisors and members of health and human services agencies, including the Department of Social Services, Human Services, Healthcare Consortium, Twin County Recovery Services and others.
