West Virginia to receive more than $35 million to combat opioid crisis

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced more than $1.8 billion in funding Wednesday to continue efforts to combat the opioid crisis by expanding treatment access and supporting data collection.

West Virginia will receive more than $35 million of the funding.

The first grant for $28,027,511 was awarded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as part of its State Opioid Response grants, according to press material.

The second grant for $7,357,388 was awarded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of a three-year cooperative agreement known as the Overdose Data to Action (OD2A). The purpose of the program is to advance the understanding of the opioid epidemic and improve prevention and response efforts.


In a separate release, U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., noted West Virginia has the highest overdoes rate per capita of any state in the nation.

"Thatís why I fought to make sure that states like West Virginia, where mortality rates are through the roof, receive more funding," Manchin said. "This language more than tripled the amount of funding our state has received over the last two years. West Virginia is ground zero and we need all of the funding we can get to help those struggling with substance use disorder receive treatment and help heal from this crisis."

Good news for West Virginia, though I doubt that Trump had anything to do with this as Republicans say in the article.
