Millions being put towards funding Illinois fight against opioids

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Federal money is coming to rural Illinois to fight the opioid epidemic.

The Illinois Department of Public Health will get more than two million dollars over the next four years to combat the growing problem.

Some of that money will go toward training police officers to administer Narcan to reverse an overdose.

The Department of Public Health Says in rural communities officers are often the first to arrive on scene to an overdose call.
