Drug Free Delta County volunteers, clients and board members worked diligently to restore "Hope House," a transitional housing facility for clients in recovery from substance abuse. Hope House is a joint project between Habitat for Humanity and Drug Free Delta County.
Mission Statement To create a safe and healthy community for present and future generations through the provision of effective, affordable and accountable community substance abuse treatment, prevention education, enforcement and recovery support services.
Goals By providing effective, affordable and accountable substance abuse treatment for the community at large as well as those individuals that come to us through the channels of law enforcement, we offer an opportunity for family and community reunification. Skills for successful sober living are achieved by weekly treatment reviews, therapeutic substance abuse treatment, random drug-testing and an active sober social activities calendar. We offer the opportunity for addicted individuals to re-integrate into the sober community as productive members of society, avoiding the expensive and most-often unproductive years of imprisonment. This not only saves taxpayers thousands of dollars, it offers dignity and opportunity for the individual.
Drug-Free Delta County’s recidivism rate among graduates is 13.6%, one of the lowest in the state of Colorado.
Family Reunification Community Reunification One of the hallmarks of Drug Free Delta County's program is an active alcohol/drug free social activities calendar that is distributed monthly to all the clients.

History The Delta County Meth Task Force, now known as Drug Free Delta County, was created in 2006 in response to an explosion in methamphetamine use in Delta County and the significant impact meth use and addiction was having on the Delta County community, users, children and local resources. It was decided that a countywide Meth Task Force should be formed. Committees included: Treatment, Prevention, Public Safety and Legal Issues, Drug Endangered Children and Environmental Health and Prevention. Dr. Nicholas Taylor, a national expert in methamphetamine addiction and recovery, joined the effort along with key civic leaders including Sheriff Fred McKee, 7th Judicial District Judge Sandra Miller and others.
