Expansion of Police Department Deflection programs

Safe Passage where individuals with a substance use disorder can seek assistance accessing treatment. Upon request assistance will be provided to any Will County Police Department to establish a Safe Passage program.

Working with individual police departments and A Man In Recovery Foundation, anyone who is suffering from an addiction, can go into one of the participating police stations and ask for help. The individual will be connected with a trained volunteer who will then personally escort the person to a licensed treatment or detox facility. The police departments recognize that we cannot arrest our way out of this crisis and that a public health approach addresses addiction as a disease that needs medical care not incarceration.
