Another hostage dies

Friday, Jan 29, 2016

* From an e-mail sent to legislators…

Haymarket Center is closing its social setting detoxification program. This was Haymarket’s first program, the start of our mission 40 years ago.

In FY 2015, this program had 1,047 admissions of 903 unique individuals.

As a social setting detoxification program, it is not eligible for a Medicaid certification, and relied on State funding. With the end of our federal portion of our DASA contract growing near, the 22% cut in our contract, and other programs such as Recovery Homes also relying on State funding, we believe we had no choice but to close this program.

We will be announcing further reductions within the next few days.

* More about this important organization

Founded in 1975 by the late Monsignor Ignatius McDermott and Dr. James West, McDermott Center dba Haymarket Center is the largest not-for-profit community-based adult detoxification, residential, and outpatient substance abuse treatment facility in Chicago. Haymarket Center has continued to grow into a comprehensive alcohol and other drug treatment organization, licensed by the state of Illinois, which receives funding from the private sector, as well as city, county, state and federal agencies. The treatment programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitative Facilities (CARF).

Msgr. McDermotts and Dr. West’s understanding of addiction as a disease provided the motivation for their call for treatment in lieu of criminalization. This fundamental perspective continues to guide Haymarket Center in pioneering innovative, high quality, community-based, social setting behavioral health programs that are gender responsive, culturally appropriate and population specific. Although Haymarket serves primarily homeless, indigent and ex-offenders from the south and west side communities of Chicago, it extends its services to the entirety of Illinois.

    “Bruce has no social agenda.” - Diana Rauner, President, Ounce of Prevention, Illinois’ First Lady

    @RonSandack: I’m frustrated 2, but taking steps towards reforming IL more important than short term budget stalemate. - Ron Sandack, 9/28/15

    Social Service organizations and Advocates;

    March Primary elections.

    Vote. Accordingly.


  2. - Give Me A Break - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:16 pm:

    This is no “mom and pop” small provider. Haymarket is one of the largest and oldest providers in Illinois with stellar reputation. Every single member of the GA and Gov’s staff need to look themselves in the mirror and ask how did I let it come to this.


  3. - jerry 101 - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:16 pm:

    The pace of these announcements is only going to increase as social service agencies start tapping out their lines-of-credit.

    Such a terrible waste. I really want to write some expletives, but don’t really want to get banned…


  4. - Stones - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:16 pm:

    This needs to change…sooner than later.


  5. - jerry 101 - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:17 pm:

    OW - how many social service agencies will still be around come primary time?


  6. - Formerly Known As... - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:18 pm:

    Dedicated to the people of Illinois by St Bruce and the Child Emperor Mike.

    Thanks again.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:20 pm:

    ===how many social service agencies will still be around come primary time?===

    Honestly, I have no idea.

    But I know come April 2016, if there’s no blowback in March, April, May, and thereafter could be far worse.

    What other way can a message be sent that better than at the ballot box?

    The Primary is the first mile post.


  8. - Ducky LaMoore - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:22 pm:

    ===But I know come April 2016, if there’s no blowback in March, April, May, and thereafter could be far worse.===

    So if Ken Dunkin wins his primary, you better have one heck of a write-in campaign ready to go. Seriously. They have, and can work.


  9. - Formerly Known As... - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:22 pm:

    ==I’m frustrated 2==

    Have the Speaker or Governor expressed any condolences?

    Sandack’s tweet has some empathy, which is more than we can say for either of their comments.


  10. - Anon221 - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:24 pm:

    Radogno- “They were weak and going to close anyway.”/s


  11. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:24 pm:

    - FKA -,

    ===but taking steps towards reforming IL more important than short term budget stalemate.===

    “Who”, “who” requires reform that can’t get 60/30, and “who” is taking the hostages because of that?

    “Who”?


  12. - Boooo! - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:29 pm:

    Shameful. Government should be helping these people.


  13. - Niblets - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:30 pm:

    This govenor is shameful. The poor are taking the short term pain. The one percent will take the long term gain. He has the crisis he wanted and hoped for, the suffering of the poor. What a great man for the rich and powerful.


  14. - Northsider - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:32 pm:

    Remember, Gov. Rauner, Sen. Radogno & Co. assure us the short-term pain is worth the long-term gain. I’ll remember that in March, and in 2018.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:36 pm:

    - FKA -,

    I do get you are giving credit to the Representative for showing empathy. I read it right.

    But, explaining that pain is required, short term, doesn’t absolve the Representative from touting the need of the hostages.

    With respect, as always


  16. - Jimmy H - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:39 pm:

    More long term consequences. Job loss and loss of services are both devastating. Definitely NOT short term.
    Republican members will have to decide if they are willing to own Rauner’s legacy. Or is it too late for them???


  17. - jim - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:39 pm:

    remember, Speaker Madigan assures us the short-term pain if worth the long-term gain.


  18. - Honeybear - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:40 pm:

    The big ones are falling now. It’s not which ones will be around by March. I don’t think this nuclear winter will be done by then. It won’t be till November, maybe, if DEMS achieve a true supermajority. If they fail then it won’t come till Rauner is out. The private social services network will be nearly entirely gone. Again only ones with really really wealthy donors. But even those will be cut WAY back. Every kind of social problem is going to EXPLODE. I can conceive of an actual economic collapse especially if the stock market indicates an impending retraction of the economy. If we have another recession in this country we are going to collapse in our weakened state. Any number of things could absolutely take us down. Student Debt, Housing crisis again, consumer credit card default, Wall Street speculation, even a Chinese recession could take us out. Does anyone think we’d economically survive that? We’re talking third world real fast in South Chicago, Decatur and East St. Louis.


  19. - GA Watcher - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:42 pm:

    Terrible news. There’s a song from the play 1776 that epitomizes what is happening in Springfield while purposeful organizations suffer. Here’s part of the chorus:
    You see, we piddle, twiddle, and resolve.
    Not one damn thing do we solve.
    Piddle, twiddle, and resolve.
    Nothing’s ever solved.


  20. - Ducky LaMoore - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:43 pm:

    ===remember, Speaker Madigan assures us the short-term pain if worth the long-term gain.===

    I’m only asking for the pure entertainment of your response…. What the heck are you trying to say?


  21. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:45 pm:

    - Ducky LaMoore -

    I’m confused too… Maybe - jim - is most confused?


  22. - old pol - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:47 pm:

    Rich
    Are you surrendering your “neutrality” in choice of headline?


  23. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:50 pm:

    old pol, notice that nowhere did I say this was a hostage of one particular person.

    You need to take a breath. Maybe even a nap, dude.

    But it sure looks to me like you believe this is a Rauner hostage. Why else would you shoot from the hip like that?

    Bite me.


  24. - Northsider - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:53 pm:

    I think jim’s comment @ 1:39 p.m. reveals more about him than perhaps he realized.


  25. - Stumpy's bunker - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:57 pm:

    Is it unreasonable to assume that, as a result of this: 1)People will die, 2)Career prospects will be gone, 3)The area crime rate will rise, 4)The family struggle of those served has just intensified.

    In Illinois, the assault on those in need is probably the worst in the nation. This is only the latest piece of evidence that a monstrous, anti-public health specter is gaining momentum.


  26. - Anon221 - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 1:57 pm:

    Rich- notice that nowhere did I say this was a hostage of one particular person.-

    I understand why my comment was not posted. My apologies.


  27. - crazybleedingheart - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 2:11 pm:

    Today in criminal justice “reform.”

    Friends like these, huh, Gary.


  28. - Keyrock - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 2:12 pm:

    I’m just about brought to tears. This is such an important program. What our current Illinois government has done to the weakest among us is so appalling.


  29. - Ducky LaMoore - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 2:15 pm:

    ===Friends like these, huh, Gary.===

    That’s right, dude.


  30. - OakParkVoter - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 2:37 pm:

    I’ve been waiting for an official statement from the religious leaders of Illinois on the destruction of their social services agencies. Have the Catholic Conference or the Lutheran bishops made statements yet? Where is the morsl outrage from the religious community — real outrage.


  31. - LTSW - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 2:39 pm:

    I’m now wondering given Radogno’s comments if there is a plan to have many of these providers close down so they can be replaced in the future with new providers of the administrations choosing. Except for big ones like Catholic Charities and Jewish Federation many of the smaller ones have ties to legislators. In my DHS days some of these smaller organizations couldn’t substantiate much actual services.


  32. - Stumpy's bunker - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 2:43 pm:

    Fellow voters, if our government “representatives” (admittedly, now an archaic term)truly believe that you do not care about events such as these, why would this social-wreckage-for-sport not continue?

    Clearly, public welfare taken a far-back seat to a financial agenda that has overpowered the political process.

    The March 2016 primaries — please vote!


  33. - Stumpy's bunker - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:01 pm:

    …has taken a far-back seat…


  34. - downstate commissioner - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:10 pm:

    I have voted R in primary elections since I was eligible to vote, some 40 odd years ago. In this small community, they will have a R ballot ready when I walk in. At this point I will probably ask loudly for a Democratic ballot.
    None of the R presidential candidates appeal to me, and the local R candidates (who WILL win in November) are all Raunercrats.


  35. - Langhorne - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:21 pm:

    Addicts really need and want term limits more than detox, recovery, and counseling. Right, radogno and durkin?


  36. - The Dude Abides - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:25 pm:

    Just more bad news to end the week. I’ll bet you that at least half the voters in Illinois don’t pay close enough attention to even realize what’s happening and the Governor is counting on that. The Governor is in office to cultivate a more profitable environment for business in Illinois. This social services stuff doesn’t mean much to him and you’re kidding yourself if you think otherwise. The March Primary is going to be big this year.


  37. - Loop Lady - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:31 pm:

    Hoping that a bipartisan testicle growing/ego reduction miracle happens…


  38. - Anon221 - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:37 pm:

    downstate commissioner- ” In this small community, they will have a R ballot ready when I walk in.”
    ****
    The very first time I was old enough to vote, in a highly R township, the election judge did the same thing to me- and I had never voted before! Shocked and disheartened on my side, disapproval and diappointment from her (not in words but in facial expression).


  39. - Jack Stephens - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:38 pm:

    Best Governor ever!


  40. - Stumpy's bunker - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:38 pm:

    Dude, voter apathy, I agree, is a big problem. I work with people who can recite the day’s sports page and have filled their memory banks with pop culture, but can’t tell you who their state representative or congressman is.

    However, as Honeybear says, the big ones (social service agencies) are falling now, and it will personally affect more and more voters. I agree that the March primary should be a big one.


  41. - Ducky LaMoore - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:41 pm:

    @Downstate Commissioner

    Welcome to my whole family. The eight remaining adults, all of whom have pulled a republican ballot (with the exception of me last year) for the last 15, 20, 30, 40 years will all be pulling Ds. There is nothing left for us nationally or in Illinois as far as the republican party goes.


  42. - btowntruth - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 3:59 pm:

    Stumpy’s bunker:
    I hear that.
    Where I live in South-Central Forgottonia,it’s the same.
    Full of people who have no idea who any of their representatives are or what they really do.
    But they can tell you what happened on every single “Duck Dynasty” episode.


  43. - Bumble Bee - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 4:03 pm:

    Bruce almighty is the biggest arguement possible for machine politics ie little guys working as a group and unions despite all of the problems both machine politics and unions cause. BA’s approach is like the old fashion doctor who believed that if the patient wasn’t cured by the first bleed another bigger one would do the trick look at housing prices and job numbers I, m sure we would have done better under PQ.


  44. - The_Equalizer - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 4:17 pm:

    As another person here likes to say every single time AFSCME is brought up:

    Elections.Have.Consequences.

    This is what Rauner and his fans want. These are not hostages or victims. They are targets of opportunity. And you can bet they won’t be in his next budget, since they aren’t really there any longer. Win! You want a balanced budget. Here you go.


  45. - Former State Employee - Friday, Jan 29, 16 @ 4:59 pm:

    Ironic that we recently lost Phil Rock, he was one of the biggest supporters of the Haymarket Center. By the way, someone tell Sen. Radogno that LSSI and Haymarket are (or were)two of the largest providers of services in Illinois…..not a small one to be absorbed into a “stronger larger provider”.
