The Show-Me State will be receiving even more money to combat opiod abuse that first thought.

US Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri says the Department of Health and Human Services has announced the state will receive nearly $10 million more for that purpose. In all, Blunt says the state will get a total of $1.5 billion for 2019. The money provides medical treatment for more than 4,000 people addicted to opiods and allows more than 10,000 people to get training in treatment, prevention and recovery from the drugs.
