COME AND CHECK OUT SUBURBAN CHICAGO’S NEW DIRECT ACCESS POINT FOR NALOXONE TRAININGS, EDUCATION, SUPPORT AND TREATMENT NAVIGATION.
Substance-related hospital admissions and overdose fatalities across Chicago’s communities are at an all-time high. The CDC reports that 174 people die from accidental drug overdose every day in the U.S. Overdose is the number one cause of accidental death in people over the age of 50. A key factor in the spread of this epidemic is the lack of access to lifesaving skills like Naloxone administration, substance use disorder treatment and clinical mental health care, and education opportunities for youth, adults, and professionals. That’s where we come in.
Run by a staff of health professionals, educators, impacted advocates and volunteers, our Recovery Centers are designed to eliminate a barrier to support, safety and services. If we cannot serve someone’s needs in-house, we will connect them with a resource that can.
Our recovery programs are currently offering:
- Recovery meetings and support groups for grief, coping, crisis and beyond
- Workshops and seminars
- Overdose education and supplies
- Education and treatment navigation
