The next meeting of the Madison County Heroin Task Force is today in Edwardsville.  The continuing series hopes to address the problem of heroin abuse in the county, and today will focus on two young women who are currently in recovery and their families. 

Tom Gibbons is the Madison County State’s Attorney and says when he and Sheriff Bob Hertz formed the group, their hope was to move the discussion outside of law enforcement.  He believes they are making progress.
