Jack Jordan_St. Rep.2017From 2015 to 2016, there was a 52-percent increase in opioid overdose deaths in Indiana. Representative Jack Jordan said, “This is alarming and tragic, and combating the drug epidemic is a top priority for House Republicans who support the opening of nine new treatment centers in the state. Additionally, two new initiatives were recently launched to provide more resources to Hoosiers struggling with addiction.”

The Next Level Recovery website combines Indiana state government and other resources to respond to substance abuse crises. The website helps individuals find certified addiction treatment providers closest to them. Hoosiers can now be conveniently connected to local treatment centers, treatment options and other useful tools to aid in recovery

Rep. Jordan said, “A new, 22-bed treatment center is also set to open by the end of this month at Richmond State Hospital. This new center will help meet the immediate needs of those affected by opioid abuse across the state.”
