Types of Assistance
Uses and Restrictions
The Rural Illinois Opioid Overdose Prevention Initiative - Care Coordination program (part of the "Empowering and Equipping Law Enforcement and Communities in Rural Illinois to Reduce Opioid Overdose" initiative) targets 18 high-need rural counties in Illinois with the goal of establishing robust follow-up, referral, and care coordination mechanisms for individuals who experience opioid overdose in the Target Area.

One of the difficulties with establishing a referral network in the Target Area is incomplete knowledge of the treatment and recovery resources available as well as weak referral relationships. Heartland Human Services and Bethany Place's respective care coordinators will participate in regional resource-mapping activities, in collaboration with IDPH as well as other regional stakeholders and providers, and will perform targeted outreach to hospitals, EDs, clinics, fire departments, and law enforcement agencies to establish strong referral relationships.
