The Quick Response Team (QRT) is a collaboration between the City of Avon, Avon Police Department, Alcohol & Drug Addiction Services (ADAS) Board of Lorain County and the Lorain County Alcohol and Drug Addiction (LACADA) Way. With this collaboration, police officers are assigned to a QRT to address opioid and opiate-related overdoses. The QRT’s goal is to engage, both, the overdose survivors and their family members. The QRT assists the survivor in accessing treatment and/or recovery supports and assists the family members in accessing resources and supports.
The QRT is funded through the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services of Lorain County.
