The Willcox Meth Task Force (WMTF) was established on July 13, 2005. With assistance from the Partnership for a Drug Free America/AZ Chapter, a collaboration was formed between of Northern Cochise Community Hospital (NCCH), Willcox Against Sustance Abuse (WASA), and the Willcox Police Department (WPD) to assist the Willcox community fight the devastating effects from meth.
The WMTF believes the best treatment of meth is the Prevention of Its First Use! The goal of the WMTF is to proactively educate the community about meth. By teaching how meth is the most devasting drug a community can be exposed to, and by engaging our community to become aware about meth, it is our intent to decrease meth's first use. This will ultimately be demonstrated by a reduction of meth-related crime, decreased meth-related illness, and decreased meth labs in our community.
The WMTF is a sub-committee of Willcox Against Substance Abuse (WASA) which is a non-profit organization. The mission of the WMTF is made possible only by committee member's dedication of their time and through the generous donations of community members. Please donate now to allow for our mission to continue.
Next meeting is scheduled July 12th. Visit "The Dispatch" section to view Agenda items.
