A Way Out Update

UPDATED PROCESS AS OF 3/26/2020
Several temporary operational changes have taken place with the A Way Out Program in Lake County
due to the Coronavirus pandemic and current stay-in-place order issued by Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker.  

Prospective participants seeking help can still request assistance from
A Way Out at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, and police departments in Mundelein and Round Lake Park.

The police departments and volunteers from the Lake County Opioid Initiative will hold a screening with the prospective patient via phone or tele-conferencing. Once a treatment level of care placement has been determined, volunteer support advocates will still provide transportation using enhanced safety protocols to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
