The Mercer County Office on Addiction Services supervises the planning, administration, and coordination of alcohol and drug abuse services in the County. The office was established in the late 1970s.
The Office on Addiction Services oversees the provision of community addiction services throughout Mercer County, and contracts with organizations to provide and support community-based prevention, early intervention, treatment, education, and recovery services, including for at-risk and special populations. Contracts are awarded via the Request for Proposals (RFP) process.
Several divisions within the Department of Human Services receive specific funding that requires the submission of multi-year plans that explain the use of the funding. The Office on Addiction Services' comprehensive plan documents the county’s current and emergent drug use trends as well as both the availability and organization of substance abuse services across the county’s continuum of prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery support. In addition, the Office on Addiction Services, in conjunction with the Mercer County Division of Mental Health, has published a resource directory to assist those seeking addiction treatment services and/or mental health services.
