However, scones and orange juice were not the purpose of the gathering. Shop Local First hosted the occasion to discuss a jam-packed summer event, The Last Days of Summer and how increased tourism is crucial for the city. Co-chairman of the Foodie Group Committee and Shop Local First board member Sherry Brianza said The Last Days of Summer will take place Aug Chairs on Parade will kick-off the 2534 Sherry Brianza Though it has only been operating for about three weeks, Macoupin County Public Health Department s new outpatient, medicine-assisted opioid drug treatment program, operating out of Maple Street Clinic in Gillespie, already has 18 participants. At a press conference held Tuesday morning in the county board room at Macoupin County Jail, MCPHD Administrator Kent Tarro announced that the organization is partnering with Addiction Treatment Strategies out of Edwardsville to provide the program, which is funded for the first two years through a $325,000 federal grant. After that, if the program is successful, MCPHD will receive funding for it along with the rest of its federal funding, which is awarded on a competitive basis every three years. Also speaking at the press conference were ATS Director John Crum, Macoupin County Sheriff Shawn Kahl, Macoupin County State s Attorney Jennifer Watson and moderator Angela Weidner, RN and chief operating officer at Maple Street Clinic. Tarro said there are three priorities for the program: helping people who are addicted to heroin and other opiates to stop using, saving the lives of people who are currently addicted, and supporting and working with people who 22-day-long celebration and feature more than 200 chairs on display. It ends on Aug. 26. The flotilla parade, Midwest s Largest Squirt Gun Fight and a street party featuring a live band and silent auction for the chairs (proceeds go to the Food Pantry) will also take place Aug. 26. The overarching event will conclude with Restaurant Week, Aug Brianza handed the floor over to three keynote speakers -- Director of the Illinois Office of Tourism Cory Jobe, Director of the Springfield Office for Landmarks Illinois Frank Butterfield and Executive Director of Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway William Kelly -- to discuss tourism and its impact on the community. Although each of their speeches were different, the overall message was the same: s local businesses could thrive through increased tourist interaction. Emphasis was placed on the city s Route 66 foundation that attracts many visitors. The speakers suggested that hone in on what makes it unique to hold the interest of those passing through. Kelly believed that the old Macoupin County Jail should be the selling point for the community. He said, I don t mean any offense, but you re not on the tourist radar screen right now. To draw people in, is going to need to think outside of the box. Brianza revealed Shop Local First s motion to unlock and open our jail by showing those in attendance one of the chairs painted by artist Ruthie Kahl. The chair s back royalty ride in area parade Miss, Karly Ambuel, and Little Miss, Caylee Mae Foiles, participated in the Black Diamond Days parade Sunday afternoon, June 3, in Gillespie. was designed to look like the archway of the jail, while the seat displays a map of Route 66. Brianza also wanted to stress the importance of local businesses catering to the college students. Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Blackburn College Peter Oswald said, The Last Days of Summer marks the new days of school for us, and we have once again increased enrollment this year. He added that local businesses could display their pride for the college by putting one of Blackburn s new welcome signs in their shop windows.

Veterans caravan set for June 18 For the second year, Macoupin Military Support Group will sponsor the veterans caravan, to be held Saturday, June 18. This is the fifth year of the caravan s existence. The caravan will begin at 9 a.m. at Mt. Olive High School (Prange Street at Route 138), then proceed to Benld Veterans Park (Central Avenue by the tank, 9:50 a.m.), Gillespie City Hall (in front of Pomatto Park, 10:10 a.m.), Dorchester Memorial (Salisbury Street, 10:35 a.m.), Bunker Hill flag pole (Route 159, 11 a.m.), Staunton City Hall (Main Street, 11:30 a.m.) and the Sawyerville Molinar memorial (Fisher Street, 11:40 a.m.), pausing at each town s veterans memorial to place a flag, fire a 21-gun salute and play taps. The caravan will end at Wilsonville City Hall (Wilson Street, noon). Times are approximate; arrival should be within 10 minutes of the listed times. A reception for participants will be held at Wilsonville Community Center following the caravan. For more information, contact Cathy Petrak at (217) or Annetta Veres at (217) MCPHD opens substance abuse treatment program are currently addicted to change their lives to lead happier, healthier, more productive and more fulfilling lives. The problems of heroin and other opiates has continued to grow in Macoupin County and the surrounding areas, Tarro said. When the funding for the proposal was being put together, MCPHD researched drug statistics in Macoupin, Madison, Jersey, Montgomery and Sangamon counties. For the five-year period from 2010 to 2014, those counties had a total of 501 opioid overdose deaths, increasing year-to-year to a high of 165 in 2014, and a total of 4,843 opioid-related arrests, also gradually increasing until 2014, which had 1,581. Crum noted that in the United States, about 120 people per day die of heroin overdoses, which amounts to about 44,000 people per year -- the population of Macoupin County. In Macoupin County, Kahl said, there are typically three to five opiate overdose fatalities each year. Watson pointed out that 43 percent of the felonies that were filed in her office in 2015 were drug-related, and that number doesn t include other crimes that were committed due to addiction, such as larceny. With this program, we re hopeful that this will reduce the number of felonies that are being committed in Macoupin County and that these people will be able to get the treatment that they need, she said, noting that for users, prosecution tends to lean more toward probation and treatment rather than incarceration, which is more of a priority for dealers. Kahl pointed out that his department typically tries to hit homes per month where drugs are suspected, in order to get the drugs out; homes are targeted based on information received from the general public. The biggest issue now is that they re spread out, they re everywhere, said Kahl. They re in your neighborhoods, they re around your children. There s needles laying all over the streets anymore. It s getting out of hand. With this kind of treatment, it s going to help us tremendously. At least we have a resource now to direct these people to, to try to get help if they truly want it -- which most of them we talk to do want it, but there was really no resource to do it. Locally, Kahl said users are typically in their late teens to early 20s, but heroin has been prevalent long enough that people who started using it 5-10 years ago are now in their 30s. The sad thing is, it s family members, it s moms and dads and they ve got young children in these houses, he said. We Smith details park improvements Resident and former councilman Mark Staerk once again expressed his desire that Councilman George Cerar resign his seat on s City Council. The request came during Monday s regular council meeting after Mayor Deanna Demuzio opened the floor for public comment. Staerk opened by expressing his frustration and disappointment on how the council handled approval of the most recent budget, specifically how rejecting the budget the first time around meant holding more meetings for which council members are paid. He offered thanks to council members Randy Bilbruck, Joe Deriso, Doug Downey and Sarah Oswald for not taking payment for those meetings. The others, who created the unnecessary meetings, should return the money, said Staerk. Because he didn t like the lawsuit against him being on the agenda, George Cerar was not present at the last meeting I attended; therefore, I am readdressing the situation. Cerar don t have a lot of big-time drug dealers here. There are a lot of users. Kahl noted that locals typically go to the North City/St. Louis area or Springfield and bring the drugs back to the county. It would probably shock you to know how many people take a trip to Springfield or St. Louis from this county on a daily basis to bring the drug back, he said. We see everyone, said Weidner. We see moms, we see dads, we see teenagers, we have some people that See MCPHD on 8A Kent Tarro, left, and John Crum were among several people who spoke about Macoupin County Public Health Department's new substance abuse program at a press conference June 7. Staerk calls for Cerar s resignation has attempted to stall the rail station agreement. He s helped damage the city s relationship with Woodard and Curran to the point they will not work with the city. He continues to push for the replacement of Plum Street with sidewalks and gutters that will cost $1.2 million, money that could go a long way on more-needed street and sewer projects, claimed Staerk, who went on to say, And, my personal favorite, he attempted to go around the council pay ordinance by trying to convince the finance committee to raise alderman expense pay by $60 per month. Thankfully, the committee rejected it. Staerk then moved to the lawsuit that has been filed against Cerar and the city by Public Works Director Tim Hasara. The people of and the voters of Ward 1 are outraged by his blatant disregard for labor law and the city s policies. In the private sector, he would have been fired immediately for this type of behavior. Staerk read from a petition that he is circulating, calling for Cerar s resignation. Although he stated he has not gotten the 300 signatures from Ward 1 residents he is seeking, he noted the support he has received from many individuals who wouldn t sign for a variety of reasons including: they owned a business, had a high-profile job, or they were related to him or other council members. Staerk concluded by describing an encounter he had with Cerar. Cerar seems to find this matter a joke. While collecting signatures on the square, I recognized his personal vehicle approaching with him in the passenger seat. Knowing he had my attention, he leaned forward in the seat and started waving both hands frantically, eyes and mouth as wide open as possible with the facial expression of a threeyear-old who just woke up from a nap and realized he was in grandma s driveway about to get cookies. I don t find this funny and a lot of others in town don t either. George Cerar needs to resign immediately. Following Staerk s comments, Demuzio asked if anyone else had any comments. Cerar responded by pointing out the previous issue of the Macoupin County Enquirer-Democrat had incorrect information regarding the dates and times of s committee meetings. See COUNCIL on 2A

2 news County holds pair of short meetings Monday COUNCIL (Continued from 1A) Smith updates board on Park District Park Board President Larry Smith addressed the Council to provide them with an update on work that has been done at the park. Smith reported that new bathrooms have been installed at Loveless Park and in the Park Board building, which also had new floors installed. It was also noted that a new pavilion has been ordered for Denby Park and should be arriving soon. Smith reported that a handicapped swing set was installed at Loveless Park. Although, the swing set was designed for wheelchair-bound children. We have had children in wheelchairs there, but we had to take it down because the other kids were starting to destroy it. They were overloading it and swinging it back and forth. He explained that the board will do something to take care of that problem. All new swings have been ordered for all the parks and a new scoreboard was purchased as was a new drag. Smith noted that dirt was added to the fields and more parking has been added near the pavilion. Smith asked the board s permission to install a synthetic infield at CNB Field. He provided the board with details regarding the Park District s finances and reported that it would be the only synthetic field from Chatham to O Fallon. Smith noted that a significant donation of between $10,000 and $15,000 from the Goesmann family will go toward funding the project. According to Smith, the new surface would allow for more tournaments to be held at the park, which would raise revenue and fund improvements on the other fields. Smith explained that more tournaments will bring more people into town who will spend money at local businesses. According to Smith, the board The CHS Post Prom Committee would like to thank the following businesses/individuals for their generosity towards our event held on May 7, 2016: Farmers Ins. Jacob Hainsfuther Anything Goes Bliss Salon My Sisters Closet Sullivan s Park Board D&D Fitness & Tanning Bank & Trust Company Hardees P.J. s Tire Bruckert-Daley Edward Jones Coco Bongo Main Street Florist Cubby Hole Kathy Lott Designs State Farm Body Depot Bohannon Insurance Cross Church The Methodist Church Demuzio Sports Center Primary School Alan Frakes Patty Bolton Mac. Co. Public Health Dept. would like to have the synthetic field installed by next spring. He added that he has already spoken with the bank and the district can get an affordable low-interest loan for the project. The synthetic field will cost $165,600. Smith said the board s intent is to put $35,000 down on the project and borrow $130,000, which would cost the district $14,000 per year, for 10 years. Which is very feasible. Very feasible, Smith stressed. Smith asked if the Park District needed the council s permission to install the synthetic field. Attorney Brent Cain said council approval is needed since Loveless Park is owned by the city and managed by the Park District. Smith then asked if the council would consider transferring Loveless Park to the Park District. Loveless Park is the only one of the city s parks not in the hands of the Park District. Smith supported his cause by informing the board that the Park District can get a lower deductible and lower insurance premiums than the city can for the facility. Cain reminded the group that the park is in the city s possession because the original DNR grant for the park could only be written by the city. It just makes sense that all the city s parks should be run by the Park District, said Smith. In response to Smith s request, Demuzio asked that the matter be sent to the Finance/Public Lands Committee for review. Train station bids opened Prior to presenting the bids on the train station, Demuzio introduced Project Manager Phil Roggio, who will be working with the city throughout the construction process. Phil comes to us with a lot of experience. We re very fortunate to have him here with us tonight, said Demuzio. The city received a pair of bids for the new train station. Following approval of a motion to open the bids, Demuzio read the bids as follows: Plocher Construction, Highland, had a total bid of $3,761,000.

Thank you all! By Eric Becker Approving nine liquor licenses and reporting very little news in regards to the old clinic building bids and courthouse elevator bids were the main topics during two short meetings by the Macoupin County Board committees on Monday evening. The liquor commission met for its annual meeting, approving liquor licenses for nine establishments throughout the county. Those getting licenses renewed included Bowlero Bowling Alley in ; Buck s Crossing in Medora; Country Club; Full Throttle, south of ; McLintock s Saloon and Steakhouse in Standard City; Plainview Vineyard and Winery; Staunton Country Club; Timber Lakes Golf Course; and Vixen Hill Winery in Palmyra. Following the liquor commission meeting, the county Building and Grounds Committee held a short meeting with a couple of notable topics. Committee chair Harry Starr reported that there have been no bids on the old clinic building across from the county courthouse on East Main St. The county has been looking at options for the building which is deteriorating, including a leaky roof. Starr also reported that no information has been received as far as bids go for the courthouse elevator repair. Bids were sent out, and some were expected back within any day now. The elevator in the courthouse has had some issues and will need to be looked at within the next few months. Board members are seeking bids to see how much various repairs would cost. They also hope to avoid any repairs until after the general election in November is completed. Starr also thanked the Master Gardeners and the Macoupin County Sheriff s Department for their continued work and planting outside on the courthouse grounds. The second bid was from Keller Construction, Glen Carbon, with a total bid of $4,491,874. The matter will come to the council for a vote once bonds and other details are verified. A notice for intent to award will be issued after review of the submitted bids. The bid will be awarded at the June 20 council meeting. At that time, the lease with Union Pacific will be awarded and the contract for construction supervision will be awarded. Roggio stressed that the June 20 date for approving those items is a best-case scenario and will depend on the review of the bid packages. Bilbruck expressed his concern that the budget he has for the project does not reflect the shortened platform. The platform design was shortened by 140 feet on each side of the tracks following Bilbruck s contention that the platform was too long and should be shortened to save money. Roggio agreed to meet with Bilbruck following the meeting. Correspondence During the correspondence portion of the meeting, the council agreed to accept the resignation of Public Works employee Tim Bouillon. The council approved and agreed to place a letter on file from Cody Maguire of the Elks Lodge, requesting the use of the square from 6-8:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 14, for the lodge s Flay Day ceremony. The Rotary announced this year s Halloween Parade have the theme of The Wonderful World of Disney and will take place at 6:15 p.m., Saturday, October 29.

Some council members showed concern about the number of items on the square. Demuzio reported that the Beautification Committee was considering moving some of the benches in the center of the square to the front of a few of the businesses on the square. The matter was tabled until more research can be done to see what plans the Beautification Committee has and what items can be placed elsewhere, so that the square isn t over crowded. In other discussion Hasara reported that repairs will be needed to a collapsed sewer in the 900 block of Charles Street. He told the board he will have repair costs for the board to consider at the June 20 meeting. Chief David Haley updated the board to clean-up efforts on the Eichen property. He reported that efforts have been made by the property owners to rectify the situation. The board approved a recommendation by Cerar to lock-in the city s energy rate with Center Point Energy through A motion was approved to make repairs to the sickle of one of the city s mowers at a cost of $2,500. The board also approved the purchase of a new mower for the cemetery from Sievers Equipment at a cost of $7,599. Oswald noted that there is money in the budget to cover the purchase. The board approved work on the water plant generator at a cost of $1,958. They also approved a service agreement for the generator at a cost of $1,211.

Shriner injured in parade motorcycle accident A weekend of fun took a serious turn Sunday afternoon when one of the Ainad Shriners Compacts riders had an accident on Montgomery Street, between East Chestnut and East Walnut streets, the last block of Gillespie s Black Diamond Days parade. According to Chief Jared De- Poppe of the Gillespie Police Department, who witnessed the accident, the team was beginning its final maneuver at the end of the parade when one of the riders, Kevin Murek, 24, a member of the Ained Shriners of Southern Illinois, lost control of his motorcycle, causing his head to strike the pavement. Gillespie-Benld Area Ambulance Service quickly responded and transported Murek to Welfare Park where District 7 firefighters had prepared a landing area so the ARCH 2 ambulance helicopter from Litchfield could land in order to transport Murek to Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis. Posting on social media Monday, Murek s fiancee, Kelsie Hanscom provided information on Murek s condition. He was diagnosed with three orbital bone fractures, an ear canal laceration, temporal fracture, a traumatic brain injury and, most concerning, a brain bleed. We have an excellent team taking care of him and he is on the road to recovery. Hanscom also wrote, We are so thankful for the Gillespie Ambulance Service, Fire Department and Police Departments. The ARCH helicopter team was amazing. I am so thankful for those involved in getting him to the right place and offering their prayers to us. He continues to improve every moment. In a conversation late Tuesday, Hanscom reported that barring any complications, Murek could be released as early as Wednesday. 2A Macoupin County Enquirer~Democrat THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2016

This weekend, June 11-12,, as well as many other communities along Route 66 in Central Illinois, will have the opportunity to put their best foot forward as the region celebrates the second annual Blue Carpet Corridor. Designed as a vehicle to promote towns along historic Route 66, the Blue Carpet Corridor gives 19 communities, stretching from Chatham to Collinsville, a reason to put on the dog just a bit by demonstrating what the region has to offer. People come from around the world to drive The Mother Road and many expect to experience all the midwestern charm this area has to muster. Route 66 is known for it s quirky roadside attractions and ability to, figuratively, take people back to a time when small town streets were still bustling with people shopping in their local business districts or, like, around the town square. Tourists passing through town want to experience that feeling. You see, nothing makes a tourist more likely to stop and see what s going on than seeing other people out and about. Barren streets aren t exactly appealing no matter how many flowers are in the planters. To make this even work for, or any community for that matter, residents need to get out. Run a few errands. Take a walk around the square and stop in a shop or two. Help the Blue Carpet Corridor help. There is more than one Route 66 path tourists can take through this area and one of them does not go through. Make editorial the route the one people want to travel. People who travel Route 66 don t do so blindly. They do their research. They join message boards with information posted by other travelers on which places to go and what towns to see. Make the town people talk about. Get out there and enjoy the day. Strike up conversations with strangers and say hello to folks you ve never see. Eat in the local restaurants and point out s don t-miss attractions such as the Courthouse and Standard Addition. Events such as the Blue Carpet Corridor are great ways to bring people to town, but it s up to the people who live here and love this place to, not only make them want to come back, but recommend it to others. Getting people to make their first trip through isn t free. It takes time, effort and money. The way to make that investment worth it is to give people a reason to come back. Sure, there are many people who simply run the other way when there s an opportunity for a crowd. There s no doubt there are people in town who haven t participated in the Lions Club Carnival or Macoupin County Fair in years. Large groups of people just aren t their thing. The Blue Carpet Corridor is different. Tourism is a revenue stream for the city s businesses. With some local companies moving all or part of their business, not only out of town, but out of the county, it s more important than ever to cultivate the city s most obvious tourist attraction: Route 66 and all the attractions on it. So, please, put yourself out there this weekend. Encourage the kids to play outside and welcome those strangers who are scratching a item off their bucket list by traveling the Mother Road. The way to make the place people want to be is to show them how great it is to be here. The Editorial Board Macoupin County Enquirer-Democrat talk to us What sports team(s) are you rooting for this summer? Northsiders the Chicago Cubs. - Jami Conway Til court do us part: marriage in the 21st century JESS WILLARD Weddings have a magical quality about them. The vow of eternal love is charming, and the idea of spending a lifetime with your beloved is marvelous. However, marriage seems to have lost its luster, especially within our current century. A 2015 report released by the U.S. Census Bureau titled Remarriage in the United States stated, The proportion of adults that had married only once has decreased since 1996, from 54 percent to 50 percent of men and 60 percent to 54 percent of women. The American Psychological Association added that about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the U.S. divorce. What happened to until death do us part? When I was a little girl and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, being someone s wife was one of the first things that came to mind simply because I adored the idea of love. As I got older, I realized that a lot of my friends were children from divorced homes. Even if the split was mutual and both parents were on positive terms, the effect on my friends was still heartbreaking. I started to lose hope for lasting love. That is until I met my fiance. With my wedding on the horizon, I have a lot of fears, and they aren t in regards to what color the tablecloths will be. I worry that we will lose this supposed chemical spark that exists between a couple. I m scared that maybe love isn t something that can be felt forever. Despite how many marriages I ve watched slowly crumble, I look to my grandmother, who spent over 50 years with my grandfather. Even though he passed away two years ago, she said she doesn t think it will ever be something she can move past. She told me that every time she sees something that she thinks he would enjoy, she wishes she could turn to him and tell him. When I asked her for advice, she explained that she wished she had spent more time in the present with the people that surrounded her instead of worrying about finances. Hard times will pass, but each moment you spend with your loved one could be the last. My father s words added to her thoughts. He has been married to my mother for 20 years. He told me that no relationship is perfect. You will have fights ranging in size, and sometimes, you will get the feeling that you want to give up. However, he said fighting is still communicating, and communication will keep your relationship alive. No two people are going to agree on everything. Although my father and grandmother insisted that no relationship would be smooth sailing, Hollywood paints pictures of irresistible romance. Whether it s dramatic and touching like The Notebook or comedic like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, we re drawn to those perfect happy endings. In some cases, we imagine if we lack the qualities of those relationships, then we re doing something wrong. The concepts of love at first sight and fighting for your significant other against any and all obstacles are enhanced through filmmakers creations. When we watch fantasy and sci-fi movies, we acknowledge that the stories are fabricated. Why can t we see that with romantic comedies? Perhaps because we see people instead of space creatures or dragons. We argue with ourselves and want to believe these fairy tale love stories are possible. The films may be made up, but the effect can be real. I know I ve tricked myself into believing I could be Tiffany from Silver Linings Playbook. I had faith that I would find my Pat, who could look past all of my problems and love me. A 2002 study conducted by Chris Segrin and Robin L. Nabi titled Does Television Viewing Cultivate Unrealistic Expectations About Marriage? examined the correlation between idealistic expectations within marriage and the romantic genre of television programming. Those whose television viewing patterns included a large quantity of romantically themed programming were more likely to hold idealistic views of marriage, it said. Even if the impact of current television viewing on marriage beliefs is largely to reinforce currently held beliefs through processes of selective exposure or selective perception, the power of this function should not be underestimated. Media may have you hoping for the one, but there is no Pat. There is no Romeo. There is your significant other and you. Marriages aren t cookie cutters and can t match any constructed ideal. They re a work in progress and full of hardships. Ultimately, if you want your marriage to last, you have to work for it and realize that perfection is simply a mirage. To the editor: I just read that the Macoupin County Board is going to consolidate some of the voting precincts in Macoupin County. Some of the precincts need to be consolidated but I disagree with splitting Brighton Precinct #3. I have been a judge for about years in this precinct. I realize that Brighton #3 is the largest precinct with 1,412 registered voters but it does not need to be split. In my opinion, letters to the editor Brighton #1 and #2 should be combined as well as a lot of other smaller ones. There has only been one election where the voters had to wait very long (and that was probably only about 20 minutes) at all in recent years. Most of the other elections, the judges sit and look at each other. Instead of five judges, we would have 10 judges looking at each other. Another thing, a lot of people do absentee voting or early voting giving us even fewer people to come in and vote. Illinois is in a terrible financial situation now, why add to it? The article says the proposed consolidation would save $11,000 for each election, why not save another $1,000 to $2,000 if we can? In our financial situation, every little bit helps. I also understand it is difficult to find election judges, so why make it even more difficult?

8 MCPHD (Continued from 1A) are in their 60s. Addiction does not discriminate. It s a disease, and it does not discriminate. Some of the statistics are absolutely alarming, said Tarro, noting that the United States consumes 99 percent of the world s supply of Oxycontin and 80 percent of the world s supply of prescription opiates overall. In addition, 85 percent of people who use heroin began with prescription opiates. Right now it is so much easier and [there s] such less bureaucracy to prescribe opiates than it is to get Suboxone, said Tarro; Suboxone is the prescription used to treat opioid addiction. That is absolutely insane when you think about where this problem came from. Tarro said Crum will be working with health care providers throughout the counties to let them know the current guidelines for opiate prescriptions. The hard line from the Centers for Disease Control is that, yes, it needs to be used during cancer therapy and end-of-life hospice care, said Tarro. Then there s debate about post-surgery, acute injury, etc., but the hard line is just cancer treatment and end-of-life hospice care. We need to reduce the supply. According to Tarro, about 20 years ago hospitals started making pain a vital statistic, similar to temperature and blood pressure, which he believes is part of the problem. We need to teach both children and adults that your goal should not be to live a painfree life, he said. Pain is a part of living, it s a part of healing, and it s a part of growing. Tarro noted that Macoupin County communities have been working on solutions to the growing drug problem, such as by having town meetings regarding heroin and other opiates and their addictive, destructive and fatal consequences. In addition, MCPHD is working to expand the Macoupin County Medical Reserve Corps and has recently received funding to recruit and train additional volunteers to provide outreach in the communities, including education and awareness to help people prevent their loved ones from becoming addicted and making sure people know where to seek treatment for addiction. The program is based on the idea that addiction is a disease. It is not a choice, it is not poor willpower, said Tarro. It is very comparable to diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. He also noted that there is a large genetic component to addiction, as much as percent. That is a fair warning for people who have had that in their families in a big way. Tarro said there are four pillars of community action for dealing with the problem of addiction: prevention, education, treatment and enforcement. We intend to attack all four at the same time, he said. A public health department s supposed to address the biggest health problems in their community and work with everyone else to make that problem either disappear or at least reduce it as much as possible and help people live a healthy, self-actualized life. For now, the program is limited to 30 participants due to federal regulations concerning the number of patients a health care provider can prescribe Suboxone. After Maple Street Clinic s psychiatrist has had her Suboxone license for one year, which will be in November, they will be able to apply to expand to 100 patients. Until that time, if there is more demand than the clinic can meet, the additional patients will be referred to the ATS program, which has open spots. Crum said that long-term outpatient programs such as this one are far more successful than 30-day inpatient programs. The outcome of 30-day treatment is zero, but that s the current model, he said. They re usually high on the plane ride home. However, insurance companies will typically pay for at least two hospitalizations or two residential treatment programs -- which can cost $25,000 to upward of $90,000 per 30-day stay -- per year, but are not as willing to fund outpatient programs such as ATS, which Crum said has a much higher success rate as most patients are involved in it for a minimum of two years. At the end of the two-year period of time, about 63 percent of our patients are no longer using anything and haven t used anything for over a year, he said. Most of my patients aren t ever going to use again, but it takes an extended period of time to get to that point. Thirty days of treatment is a myth; treatment on a residential basis is a myth. It has to be in the environment in which the addiction occurs. You go away for 30 days, you re isolated, you re not having to deal with your kids, your family, your parents, work, legal problems. You get out of inpatient and all those problems hit you. In outpatient, you re dealing with all of those problems, and we re helping you deal with them step-bystep, said Weidener, who pointed out that even if inpatient programs worked, there aren t any available in this area due to the state budget crisis. I had a patient come to us in tears last week. She was told by two inpatient places just to keep using for three months until a bed became available. Medicaid pays for Suboxone, but that is not the case with most insurance companies. We currently have to fight with every insurance company for them to pay for it, said Weidner. We are billing insurance for what we can bill for, but, again, the rate of what they pay for outpatient services isn t near enough. That s why we needed the grant. Like all of the clinic s services, the substance abuse program fees are offered on a sliding scale based on income. No patients will be denied based on their inability to pay. The program also will treat underlying problems of addiction, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. First we do an extremely careful assessment, then we go to the medical system, which impacts on the cravings for the drug, Crum said. Then we look at the psychological component of the cravings. Why do people continue to use? We can treat that on a psychological basis that supports the medical component. Patients will be required to attend group and individual therapy sessions every week, as well as keep a journal and stay in regular contact with the therapist. Success is in small steps, Crum said. We have had patients who had been using 140 milligrams of Vicodin on a daily basis that are down to four milligrams a month. That s extremely significant change. What that means is the neurobiology of the brain is changing back and the patients are gaining control of their lives. For the most part, our patients are using to stay alive. They don t use to get high; that s a myth. They use to be functional. He added, It s not necessarily the cravings that get them, which we can address with medication. It s the compulsion to do something. It s not atypical for our patients to shift one compulsion to another; they may shift from heroin to gambling. Gambling s not a drug, but it works exactly the same way. Have FREE STUFF? F R E E A D!
