Ohio Receives Opioid Funding
An Ohio board of health has received a new grant from the state to continue its treatment of opioid addiction, reports The Record Herald. The Alcohol, Drug, and Mental Health (ADAMH) Board was awarded a State Opioid Response grant worth $148,732 to use among relevant health organizations in Fayette, Highland, Pickaway, and Pike counties. It is the second grant given to the ADAMH Board, and it accompanies the $140,600 given to Fayette County Community Action Coalition to expand its existing opioid response program. The ADAMH Board plans to use the funds to include peer support in its opioid treatment program.
