Clinton CRUSH+ stands for Community Resources United to Stop Heroin and other drugs. CRUSH+ strives to provide viable resources within the community to combat the opioid epidemic through identification, education, treatment and prevention.
The City of Clinton was awarded a grant in 2018 to help address opioid related issues. As part of that project the Drug Abuse Response Team (DART) was created.
The DART is comprised of Clinton Police Department law enforcement officers, Clinton Fire Department EMS, as well as a specially trained ASAC member. They work to identify, educate, assist, and provide resources to at-risk individuals.
The DART responds to victims who overdose and provide resources while connecting them with interventions or treatment options. The DART meets regularly to schedule outreach, interventions, and educational assistance as needed. This team will also respond or react to assist those in need of treatment for opioid addiction.
The DART is led by:
DART Supervisor Sgt. Joel Wehde, Clinton Police Department 563-243-1455 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dart Supervisor Battalion Chief Greg Forari, Clinton Fire Department 563-242-0125 or email: email@example.com
The DART works to help connect individuals with community resources including these services and more:
