Need help with opioid addiction?
Call us (630) 420-6665

While enforcement action must continue to be a Department priority, persons who recognize they need help and seek that help should not be turned away from the appropriate resources. The Connect for Life program seeks to connect opioid users to treatment using community partnerships and resources.

It is recognized that there is a narrow window, generally 12-24 hours, to help an opioid user when the person decides he or she wants help. The purpose of this program is to divert these persons away from the criminal justice system and immediately to treatment. 

The Connect for Life initiative is specifically targeted towards opioid users and not users of other non-opioid drugs.
