In the midst of the opioid crisis, it may feel like we will never get out of it. Lives continue to be lost, and the fight seems to get harder. But in Berks County, there is hope to be found amid this current tragedy.

In this COCA publication, you will find articles highlighting just some of the great work being done in Berks County in the name of Prevention, Intervention, Treatment and Recovery services addressing the opioid crisis. This work can not be done alone, and the Council on Chemical Abuse recognizes that it is not just our efforts that better our community, but also the work of those organizations we work alongside and the many individuals dedicated to the drug & alcohol field. We hope after reading our report you will walk away knowing a little more about the work being done, and know that people do get well!
