Mon Valley Opioid Coalition

The Mon Valley Opioid Coalition (MVOC) coalition was formed to combat the ongoing opioid epidemic in the Mon Valley area.  Colleen Hughes, Executive Director of Westmoreland Drug and Alcohol Commission and Monessen Police Chief Jim Smith co-chair the coalition.  The coalition, whose vision statement is “Uniting the Mon Valley to ensure the long-term health, safety and well-being of individuals in the region,” meets monthly at Westmoreland Drug and Alcohol Commission’s office building’s training room in Monessen.

The Westmoreland Drug and Alcohol Commission, Washington Drug and Alcohol Commission and Fayette County Drug and Alcohol Commission work together to guide the efforts of the coalition.  MVOC is data based, utilizing data in real time to determine what is most effective in combating opioid use overdoses.  The University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy Pennsylvania Opioid Overdose Reduction Technical Assistance Center, provides “concierge technical assistance” for the coalition.
