BOSTON – The Executive Office of Health and Human Services and the Department of Public Health today announced $466,450 in grants awarded to four healthcare organizations to improve treatment for youth and young adults with substance use disorders and/or co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders.
“As we continue to combat this opioid crisis, we need to use every tool available to us to ensure that our most vulnerable – youth and young adults included – get the intervention, treatment, and recovery services they need,” said Secretary of Health and Human Services, Marylou Sudders.
This funding, awarded through a competitive process, comes from a grant awarded to DPH by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) State Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination Implementation (STY-I) Cooperative Agreement Grant in 2015. The awards expand access to evidence-based assessments, treatment, recovery and behavioral health services in four communities.
The four agencies receiving funding from these grants are:
- North Suffolk Mental Health Association: Boston Area – $100,000
- High Point Treatment Center: Southeast/Brockton Area – $156,450
- Boston Medical Center: Boston Area – $110,000
- Duffy Health Center: Cape Area – $100,000
