Hoosiers struggling with addiction will soon have more local treatment options available, thanks to new regional partnerships in northern, central and southern Indiana.

These partnerships, along with Gov. Eric Holcomb’s Next Level Recoveryinitiative and $3 million in state funding, will support the launch of up to six comprehensive addiction recovery networks across Indiana over the next two years.

These comprehensive addiction recovery networks are made possible thanks to a law I supported this year.

If you or someone you know struggles with addiction, please contact Indiana 2-1-1, which provides free and confidential services to Hoosiers across the state, and helps connect them with local resources 24/7.
