Addiction Treatment Initiatives in San Diego

Created as the San Diego Oxy Task Force in 2008 and renamed the Prescription Drug Abuse Task Force (PDATF) in 2010, this partnership organization is made up of law enforcement, prevention, treatment, education, health and community advocates working together to solve a “complex problem in a comprehensive way.” The sixty participating agencies can be found here.

Similarly, the Meth Strike Force of San Diego County is comprised of 70 similar member organizations. It was formed in 1996 by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to tackle the methamphetamine epidemic. The task force reports nearly one in four drug treatment admissions in San Diego County are for meth addiction. In a late 2017 Fox 5 report, the strike force reveals a “total of 377 fatalities linked to the highly addictive drug occurred locally in 2016, on average one every 23 hours. The tally was the highest in a single year and 66 more than in 2015.”

“They are an amazing group of people that helped me when I was at my lowest point,” wrote Brittany Wood on the Alpha Project’s Facebook page. “They taught me that it is ok to love myself first. Without the love guidance and support I got from them I don’t think I would of had the courage to get out of my situation, go home to my family and start fixing myself from the inside out.”
