Ill. officials want more money to fight opioid addiction
Illinois law enforcement officials want state lawmakers and Gov. Bruce Rauner to keep about $17 million in funding for human services programs and add $50 million to early childhood programs to address opioid abuse. They cited a program that sends nurses or other human services workers to homes to work with young and economically disadvantaged parents as a successful intervention to prevent child abuse and opioid addiction.
