In an effort to determine the scope of the drug epidemic within Plymouth County, District Attorney Tim Cruz and Sheriff Joe McDonald have created the Medical Subcommittee of the Plymouth County Drug Abuse Task Force.
The Medical Subcommittee is made up of several talented professionals who have varying specialties and backgrounds within the healthcare system. The common denominator is that they all work in the area of substance use disorders. Several members have lost loved ones to this scourge, making their devotion to this cause much more personal.
