Over $3M in funds granted for accessible care services

Posted: Updated:

Services to help those fighting addiction will now be even more accessible thanks to new funding for underserved communities.

More than $3 million will go to mobile treatment and telepractice services for addiction across the state, making critical care more accessible for those in need.

Additionally, $2.25 million will go to vehicles for providers to drive to neighborhoods with high addiction problems.

In order to gain more staff and support, another $930,000 will be used to boost telepractice capacity and equipment.
