Qualified opioid treatment programs, practitioners and health centers can apply through June 4 for up to $200,000 a year for five years to expand access to Food and Drug Administration-approved opioid overdose treatments, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration announced yesterday. SAMHSA expects to fund up to five recipients, who will partner with other prescribers in the community to develop best practices and train prescribers and individuals who support people at high risk for overdose.
