IDHS/SUPR Drug Overdose Prevention Program

The Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (IDHS/SUPR) administers the Drug Overdose Prevention Program (DOPP). Agencies or programs may voluntarily enroll in DOPP to provide Overdose Education and Naloxone Distribution (OEND) services. OEND is an evidence-based method for reducing opioid overdose deaths and a vital part of the state's strategy to end the overdose crisis. DOPP enrolled organizations are authorized to train people in Illinois on overdose response and provide them with naloxone to use in the event of a suspected opioid overdose. IDHS/SUPR encourages DOPP enrolled organizations to order and provide naloxone directly to people who use drugs and other individuals who may be present when an opioid overdose occurs, such as family and friends of people who use drugs, community members, human service providers, and traditional first responders.  

Potential enrollees include:

  • SUPR-licensed substance use treatment programs
  • Recovery homes
  • Local public health departments
  • Hospitals
  • Educational facilities
  • Not-for-profit community-based organizations
  • Urgent care facilities
  • Faith-based organizations
  • Police departments
  • Local businesses
