Indiana to Receive More Than $18 Million from HHS to Support Opioid Treatment Services

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment is awarding the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration with an $18,147,223 grant for opioid treatment services. The funding is provided through HHS’s Mental Health & Substance Abuse Service Grants program.

“The pain of losing a loved one due to an opioid overdose is something no one should have to endure. Unfortunately, this is the reality for far too many families,” said Senator Young. “This grant funding is welcome in Indiana, where our state has been working aggressively to curb the terrible opioid epidemic and provide treatment options for Hoosiers looking to turn their lives around.” 

HHS’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) works to promote community based substance abuse treatment services. CSAT grants support a comprehensive response to the opioid epidemic and expand access to treatment and recovery support services at the state and local level.
