SAMHSA announces $196M for opioid treatment grants

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA ) is accepting applications for $196 million to treat opioid use disorders through one of its grant programs. The new funding will expand access to medication-assisted treatment and recovery support services to people with opioid use disorder, SAMHSA said. Eligibility is limited to the states – and public and private nonprofit organizations in the states – with the highest rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin and prescription opioids per capita and includes those with the most dramatic increases for heroin and prescription opioids, as identified by SAMHSA’s 2015 Treatment Episode Data Set. See the funding opportunity announcement for more details, including a list of the 35 eligible states. Tribes and tribal organizations from anywhere in the U.S. are eligible.
