$31 Million Grant To Fight Opioid Epidemic

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — More help is on the way in the fight against the opioid crisis in North Carolina.

Thursday morning, Gov. Roy Cooper and Attorney General Josh Stein announced a $31 million grant to help people fight addiction. Eighty percent of that money, approximately $25 million, will go toward treatment.

That money is in addition to the $20 million in addiction treatment and recovery that lawmakers are calling for.

Earlier this month, President Trump appointed Cooper to a panel created to fight the opioid crisis.
