In a move designed to increase access for substance use disorder services across southern Illinois, Centerstone and Fellowship House of Anna are aligning their services, starting on January 6.

The two organizations made the announcement Thursday. 

The non-profit Centerstone, which offers substance abuse and mental health treatment, sponsored a workshop on getting families involved in the substance-abuse treatment process recently.

Centerstone unveiled their new medication assisted treatment facility in Marion today. Congressmen Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) and John Shimkus (R-Collinsville) and State Representative Dave Severin (R-Benton) were on hand to tour the center.

The MAT facility will be the first of its kind in southern Illinois. It will offer access to three FDA-approved medications used for treating opioid addiction, as well as counseling, case management, peer support, and medical services.

The Illinois Department of Human Services has hired a Boston-based company to run an opioid help hotline despite receiving proposals from at least three Illinois providers.
