Tennessee gets funding for opioid fight
US Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) has announced that Tennessee will receive a nearly $14 million grant from the Department of Health and Human Services in the state’s fight against the opioid crisis. The state received nearly $14 million last year as well – both grants were funded by the 21st Century Cures Act that Alexander authored and President Obama signed into law in 2016. Says Alexander, “The devastation of the opioid crisis has touched nearly every community in our state, and today’s announcement – that Tennessee is set to receive another nearly $14 million to fight its ongoing opioid epidemic – will provide a major boost to Tennesseans on the front lines of a battle that is being waged county by county and doctor’s office by doctor’s office.”
