Community Support After Opioid Overdose

Naloxone Plus

An individual who survives from an overdose is still at risk of suffering from another opioid overdose if appropriate help and support is not provided. The DuPage Narcan Program is expanding its efforts by implementing a Naloxone Plus framework with interested police and fire departments. Naloxone Plus models engage people with follow-up after an opioid overdose reversal, including providing Naloxone for the individual and their household, linkage to treatment, and other resources. If your agency is interested in implementing a Naloxone Plus program, contact us.

Connect for Life

The Naperville Police Department’s Connect for Life program facilitates a connection to treatment for anyone who seeks help with substance use. Anyone who enters the police department and requests help is screened and connected to treatment as quickly as possible.
