State awarded federal drug treatment grant

July 31st, 2015 by WCBC Radio

A federal grant of $815,745 per year for three years awarded to the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) will be used to expand enrollment in substance abuse treatment in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County. Reversing the scourge of opioid addiction gripping the Maryland region is a top priority of the Hogan administration. Earlier this year, Gov. Larry Hogan and Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford announced the establishment of both the Heroin and Opioid Emergency Task Force and a separate Inter-Agency Coordinating Council. Both groups have worked to address Maryland’s growing heroin and opioid crisis.
