$17.5M Distributed to Help Michigan’s Opioid Epidemic

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has announced the allocation of a multi-million grant from the State Opioid Response (SOR) Grant in response to the opioid epidemic.

The $17.5 million will support services for individuals at the highest risk of overdose, including offering medications to treat opioid use disorder, as well as naloxone within the criminal justice system and in the emergency department following an overdose.

The money is also to help meet Governor Whitmer’s goal of cutting opioid overdose deaths by half within five years.
