Overview

The Luzerne-Wyoming Counties Drug and Alcohol Executive Commission works in conjunction with the Luzerne-Wyoming Counties Drug and Alcohol Program to provide a continuum of care to residents of Luzerne and Wyoming counties with respect to the abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. 

The Commission oversees the Luzerne-Wyoming Counties Drug and Alcohol Program’s delivery of the services of prevention, intervention, and treatment. The Executive Commission’s goal is to eradicate addiction within the counties and, to this end, to advise the Program Administrator in the distribution of federal, state, and county resources.
