Governor Pritzker is launching an Overdose Action Plan for Illinois.  The plan is designed to combat the opioid epidemic in the state.  The governor said nearly three-thousand Illinois residents died of opioid overdoses in 2020, the deadliest overdose year on record in the state.  The plan will be a partnership to provide mental health and recovery services to Chicago and other areas most affected by opioid deaths.
