Maryland Schools Receive Opioid Prevention Funds

(July 10, 2019)

Schools in Montgomery, Maryland, will receive a grant to educate its students on opioid prevention in the coming year, reports My MC Media. The state grant, worth $540,000, is the Heroin and Opioid Prevention grant. The Montgomery County Public Schools have a three-part plan for it. They will purchase opioid avoidance programs for both students and parents, fund the relaunch of an opioid public awareness campaign, and supply the schools with the opioid antidote Narcan. Both the avoidance programs and public awareness campaigns plan to engage the community. The county will use the Botvin Lifeskills Training Program to teach its students about opioid use’s harms. Parents and guardians will also receive workshops to learn preventive measures.
