The City of Clinton is striving to provide viable resources within the community to combat the opioid epidemic. Through a multidisciplinary team (MDT), we are working to identify, educate, treat, and prevent further instances of opioid abuse, addiction, and fatalities within our community.
The Drug Abuse Response Team (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.
MercyOne Clinton Medical Center has opened a facility to provide comprehensive, holistic treatment for opioid use disorder. MercyOne Clinton Medication-Assisted Treatment Clinic at 221 Main Ave. provides treatment through medication, cognitive behavioral therapy and peer support.
The ASAC MAT Care Coordinator provides navigation and care coordination for supportive services for patients. The MAT Care Coordinator provides navigation and care coordination services to patients receiving services as well as works with an interdisciplinary team who provide various services to these patients.
Bridgeview Community Mental Health Center provides a Peer Recovery Support Specialist. The Peer Recovery Support Specialist provides direct and indirect peer support and education to persons in recovery or persons trying to get into recovery.
The Clinton Substance Abuse Council hired a Project Coordinator to focus on this effort. The project coordinator is responsible for planning, implementing, and maintaining services specifically under the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP). The project coordinator organizes required trainings, prepares response protocols, and develops and communicates with the community multidisciplinary team members.
