INDIANAPOLIS — With the creation of Indiana’s Next Level Recovery website, Hoosiers can now have direct access to all state resources on the opioid crisis without jumping from site to site.

“The Next Level Recovery website will be the front porch for Hoosiers looking for information and resources on opioid addiction,” Gov. Eric Holcomb said in a statement last week. “This website will change and develop over time along with our efforts, and I hope it will become a go-to resource for communities, families and individuals.”

The Next Level Recovery site offers information for health care professionals, law enforcement, emergency professionals, community leaders, and those with substance abuse disorders and their families.

“For the first time, the state will have website for Hoosiers looking for information and help for substance abuse disorder,” Jim McClelland, Indiana executive director for drug prevention, treatment and enforcement, said in a statement. “Now we have a hub to direct them to the right state resources.”

The website will house information such as data, facts, Indiana initiatives, ways to get involved, and information on opioid abuse treatment, prevention and enforcement.

Holcomb made attacking the drug epidemic one of the five pillars of his agenda when he took office.

“I am committed to using a comprehensive, data-driven strategy so that we can address gaps in the system and stop the current trajectory in Indiana,” Holcomb said in a statement. 

The Next Level Recovery site can be found at IN.gov/recovery.
