A Way Out

A Way Out

“A Way Out” is a Lake County, Illinois Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion pilot program, designed to fast-track users to substance abuse programs and services.

This program is offered 24 hours a day, 365 days per year at participating police departments across Lake County and ensures no criminal charges will be sought for those that may be in possession of narcotics or paraphernalia, as long as assistance is sought out by the prospective program participant.

Other participating Police Departments:Mundelein - Deerfield - Fox Lake - Grayslake - Gurnee - Lake County Sheriff/Marine/Highway Patrol - Lake Forest - Libertyville - Mundelein - Round Lake Beach - Round Lake - Zion

Police Chief Steve Husak: 

“This program takes our department outside the typical world of law enforcement by helping people who are struggling with addictions by changing their lives and getting them some help,”
