Illinois Opioid Funding

Thanks to the two U.S. senators for Illinois, five health organizations in central Illinois will receive $1 million to support treatment of opioid addiction, reports Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) secured the fund through the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration, in particular through the department’s Rural Communities Opioid Response Program. These five organizations will receive $200,000 each to support opioid treatment and prevent its abuse: the Southern Illinois University Center for Family Medicine, the Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services, Chestnut Health Systems, Inc., St. Francis Hospital, and the County of Macoupin. Sen. Duckworth declared, “Investments like these are critical in helping rural communities, and I will continue working with Sen. Durbin to ensure those treating and preventing opioid addiction have the resources they need to serve their communities.”
