Anti-Drug Smuggling Information

Accidental overdose continues to be a safety issue for adults in custody, and that safety issue has been more apparent than ever since the national opioid crisis.

The following videos are a product of the Comprehensive Drug Task Force. The Task Force worked with the University of Oregon through a federal grant to educate and create a safe rehabilitative environment for everyone within DOC's facilities. We hope this information helps visitors take action to keep DOC institutions safe.
