The Clermont County Addiction and Recovery Partnership (CARP), formerly the Clermont County Opiate Task Force (OTF) recently changed its name to reflect a broader focus on substance misuse in general versus opioid misuse.
The mission of the CARP is to minimize substance misuse, distribution, addiction, overdose, and deaths in Clermont County.
The vision of CARP is to create a healthier community by reducing unintentional overdose fatalities and community trauma associated with addiction through collective multi-sector efforts that focus on prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery.
CARP provides a structure for community response to substance misuse; engages our community to develop and pursue a unified goal; coordinates and facilitates local prevention and educational training for our community; and evaluates the effectiveness of the response to the overdose epidemic.
