Mayor's Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force on Opioids

A coalition of multi-jurisdictional and community partners who are collectively working to develop a coordinated plan to reduce opioid abuse, dependence, and overdose in Minneapolis and to address treatment and recovery strategies that are culturally-specific and evidence-based.

The task force is charged with confronting the region's growing opioid epidemic, recommending a comprehensive strategy that focuses on action around the areas of prevention, increasing access to treatment on demand, harm reduction, and reducing the number of fatal overdoses.

By the end of the first quarter 2019, the task force will present an opioid action plan to the Mayor and City Council.

Meetings

The next meeting of the task force is the Community Systems Integration Subcommittee:

Tuesday, December 11th, 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. 
Minneapolis City Hall, Room 132
350 S 5th Street

The first meeting of the Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force on Opioids was held April 23. Mayor Frey opened the meeting by welcoming the group and thanking them for their participation. All of the task force members then discussed their professional expertise and individual strengths. This exercise made it possible to combine their diverse backgrounds to identify existing programs, barriers, and strengths. Finally, four subcommittees were formed to address the identified barriers and build on existing programming and strengths.

Subcommittees

The Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force on Opioids is composed of four subcommittees. These groups meet on a monthly basis and focus on a particular aspect of the opioid epidemic. For more information, please visit the following pages.

Treatment, Recovery, and Peer Support

Eradicating the stigma associated with the disease of addiction and recovery and provide easier access to treatment, recovery services, and ongoing support to Minneapolis residents who are struggling with opioid use and/or misuse.
