With County funding that was spearheaded by Commissioner Gannon, the DeKalb Community Service Board was able to secure state dollars and open a new Opioid Residential Treatment Program, which officially began accepting referrals in February. The program provides a structured semi-independent treatment program for individuals with opioid use disorders to gain a solid foundation for ongoing recovery. In addition to the services at the residential facility, the clients attend day treatment at DeKalb Addiction Clinic. As they gain recovery skills they will transition from day treatment to supported employment and employment or school, in addition to continued clinical services.
