Depot Site Plan

We are pleased to offer the Safe Passages Program here in Lincoln, IL, for the purposes of providing a light at the end of the tunnel for those addicted to an opioid.  Too many times we have had heroin, or other opioid, overdoses that have resulted in loved ones lives being cut short.

 

To help reduce the number of fatal and nonfatal overdoses in Lincoln, we are changing the way we handle addicts who request help with their addiction to opiates such as morphine, heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone as found in OxyContin®, Percocet® and Percodan®, and hydrocodone as found in Vicodin®. There are limited facilities in the central Illinois area to care for these individuals, and it is very difficult to gain admission to inpatient facilities.  It is recognized that there is a narrow window, generally 12 – 24 hours, to help a person addicted to opiates when they decide they want help.  The purpose of this program is to divert them away from the criminal justice system and immediately to treatment.

 

With the strong support of Mayor Seth Goodman and the City of Lincoln Council, the support of Police Chief Paul Adams, and with the support of the Logan County State’s Attorney Jonathon Wright, The City of Lincoln is adopting the Safe Passages Initiative to address the needs of any Logan County resident who comes into the Lincoln Police Department requesting help with their opiate addiction. Beginning Monday, October 9, 2017, those that are addicted to an opioid simply need to come to the Lincoln Police Department, 911 Pekin St, Lincoln, to speak with an officer who will initiate the process.

 

A similar program was established by PAARI  in Massachusetts and was adopted in Illinois by Dixon, IL, along with Pekin, IL, and several other agencies in Illinois. 

 

This program is supported locally by the ALMH Community Health Collaborative (HCP) and the Logan County Opioid Taskforce.

 

This program is specifically for those with an opioid addiction and there are eligibility requirements associated with the program for the safety of those involved.
