Dr. Austman is instrumental in the success and support of the Opioid Coalitions of Ford, Iroquois, and Livingston counties. These coalitions continue to grow and work with local law enforcement, government, educators, and healthcare providers to provide information and options to serve and educate communities. “A passion of mine is harm reduction and stigma reduction in our communities. Meeting monthly with county opioid coalitions and ROSC councils (recovery-oriented systems of care) has allowed me to work toward the goal of supporting patients through community action. I feel fortunate that Gibson Area Hospital and Health Services has continued to recognize the need for addiction medicine services in our area and has been very supportive in this endeavor.”


Dr. Austman treats Substance Use Disorder (SUD) at Gibson Recovery Optimizing Wellness (GROW) in Gibson City and Gibson Health of Watseka.
