(INDIANAPOLIS) - Monday, the Governor's Task Force on Drug Enforcement, Treatment, and Prevention presented its final report at its meeting at Fairbanks in Indianapolis.

The Task Force was established by Executive Order in September 2015 with the goal of bringing together Indiana experts from a variety of specialties to evaluate the growing national drug problem here in Indiana. Today was the last meeting of the Task Force, as the Indiana Commission to Combat Drug Abuse was created in the 2016 legislative session through SEA 271 to continue the work of the Task Force.

"I am grateful for the work of the members of the Task Force and all those who contributed in this effort to combat drug abuse across the state of Indiana," said Vice President-elect Governor Pence. "The final report of the Task Force shows the progress we have made in coming alongside those who struggle with the grip of addiction and provides a basis for how to address this important issue moving forward. As the Indiana Commission to Combat Drug Abuse assumes responsibility for developing a long-term, comprehensive strategy to address this crisis, I am confident that Hoosiers will be well-served by the progress we have made."

The Task Force's final report can be found online.
