State Awards $2.4 Million For Opioid Treatment

The state has awarded 17 counties and four tribes around $2.4 million for opioid treatment. Wisconsin health officials say the long-term goal is to reduce the number of deaths and hospitalizations statewide.

The money comes from a two-year $15.2 million grant from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Around 900 people received help through last year’s grants, said Paul Krupski, opioid initiatives director with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
