Mission Statement:  The Mashpee Substance Use Task Force is a multi-disciplinary collaboration designed to promote community awareness of substance use through education, prevention and treatment to build a healthy, safe and drug-free community.


1) Engage the community with our wellness campaign, “It’s Never Too Early…Or too Late” in order to prevent substance use and reduce the stigma associated with addiction.

2) Educate the community about the individual and family treatment options available and connect those in need with treatment providers.

3) Promote the safe disposal of prescription medications in order to decrease access for those struggling with addiction.
