Seven police departments in Lake County, Ill. have joined P.A.A.R.I. with their expansive countywide addiction recovery program.
The Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.) is pleased to announce that Executive Director Allie Hunter McDade attended the first-ever National Deflection Summit this week, which focused on law enforcement initiatives around the country to combat the opioid crisis, and the partnerships formed with mental and behavioral health organizations.
P.A.A.R.I. was recently featured in a Boston Globe article highlighting the successes of the program as well as the Gloucester ANGEL Initiative.
