About

The Juneau Opioid Work Group (JOWG) was established in 2015 in response to concern over opioid and heroin use in the community. JOWG remains focused on tackling this issue on a variety of fronts. The goal of the group is to be a place for community members and service providers to share information about efforts to address substance use in Juneau including prevention approaches, treatment options, and recovery supports while also serving as a driving force behind initiatives to address heroin and prescription drug misuse such as the Alaska Partnerships for Success grant program.
