$250k for opioid response

An estimated 2,514 individuals in the Marianas are expected to receive help with treatment, recovery, or prevention of opioid addiction over the next two years with funding Congress appropriated for the State Opioid Response program. First-year funding to the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation is $250,000, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration announced today. President Biden named the opioid crisis and overdose epidemic a top priority in his first State of the Union speech last year, and Congress responded with funding. Congratulations, CHCC!
