Heroin Task Force Headed to Rockford

The Young Adults Heroin Use Task Force that was created last year by the Illinois General Assembly will be coming to Rockford to hear local testimony. The task force was created to address the growing problem of heroin use in high schools and communities throughout the State. State Representative John Cabello (R-Machesney Park) is one of fourteen members appointed to the task force last year.

This task force will use the testimony to construct a statewide report in hopes of creating a roadmap to curving abuse in our schools in communities.” Read more.
