Partnership to provide faster access to addiction treatment

Indiana is launching a tool designed to help connect Hoosiers seeking treatment for substance abuse with available inpatient or residential treatment services.

The partnership was announced by FSSA Secretary Jennifer Walthall and Indiana Executive Director for Drug Prevention, Treatment and Enforcement Jim McClelland.
