Objectives and Goals
IDHS/DASA is committed to supporting the development of local, rural infrastructures that can improve access to treatment in communities that are currently unserved. These pilot projects will use the Hub and Spoke Model to develop a network of services serving a defined geographic area. IDHS/DASA has allocated $1,000,000 to fund two (2) Hub and Spoke MAT Pilots during Year 2 that will be implemented in areas of Illinois which currently have relatively few treatment resources for persons with OUD (MAT deserts).

The Hub and Spoke Model is recognized as an evidence-based regional approach for delivering Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to clients who suffer from opioid use disorders. This approach is designed to coordinate opioid use disorder treatment with medical care and counseling, supported by community health staff and services, to effectively treat the whole person as they make their way along the path to recovery.

A Hub is a regional opioid treatment center responsible for coordinating the care and support services for patients who have complex substance use disorders and/or co-occurring mental health conditions. Patients who need methadone must be treated here. Patients who need buprenorphine or naltrexone may be treated here.

A Spoke is a primary care practice, specialty practice or health center responsible for coordinating the care and support services for patients with opioid use disorders who have less complex medical needs. Only patients who are treated with buprenorphine or naltrexone receive treatment in the spokes.

Depending on the patient’s needs, Support Services may include mental health and/or substance use disorder treatment, pain management, family supports, life skills, job development, and recovery supports.
