"I am glad the Coalition will be holding this important town hall meeting in Tehachapi. It takes a community response to truly eradicate the scourge drug use has on our towns." said Supervisor Scrivner.

The Kern Stop Meth Now Coalition was created in 2009 at the request of the Board of Supervisors upon review of the Meth Impact Study, which reported that the county budget was heavily impacted in a majority of departments by methamphetamine. Criminal cases, treatment for those who are addicted to the drug, medical costs for people impacted by the drug, law enforcement costs for ancillary crime the often accompanies drug use, all of this and more demand attention and use valuable resources of county agencies.

Since that time, the Kern Stop Meth Now Coalition has worked with many communities throughout Kern County to address needs associated with alcohol and other drug use, including methamphetamine.
