The Biden-Harris Administration signed the American Rescue Plan to address our Opioid Crisis. These actions are critical, especially with the increased numbers in overdose deaths. The plan will invest $4 billion dollars to expand access to harm-reduction services to help individuals with Substance Use Disorder.
Syringe Service Programs participants are 5x more likely to enter drug treatment and 3x more likely to stop using drugs.
CHARIOT connects trained lay responders to individuals experiencing an overdose. The goal is to work in parallel with 911 to provide naloxone as quickly as possible, reduce response times and prevent fatal overdoses.
As a result of funding from the Division of Mental Health and Addiction/State of Indiana, Overdose Lifeline and the Dept of Correction will offer Naloxone as an option for each offender upon release.
