Thurston County Opioid Response Task Force

​About the Task Force

The Thurston County Opioid Response Task Force was convened to address the opioid epidemic. The Task Force consists of a wide range of local partners and is co-chaired by Jon Tunheim, Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney and Schelli Slaughter, Director of Thurston County Public Health & Social Services.

In June 2019, the Thurston County Board of Health formally adopted a Thurston County Opioid Response Plan that is now being implemented by the Task Force and communities across Thurston County. The Task Force welcomes new partners.


Progress Monitoring

Progress of the Thurston County Opioid Response Plan is measured using SMART objectives. SMART objectives provide a way to confirm whether strategies found in the plan are achieving desired impacts.
