Featured News: Need for Multiple Naloxone Doses on the Rise
The percentage of people treated for a drug overdose who need more than one dose of the opioid overdose antidote naloxone is on the rise, a new study suggests.
Peer-to-peer addiction recovery programs may apply for $8.8 million in grants from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
The grants will fund efforts to “deliver and evaluate peer-to-peer recovery services that help prevent relapse and promote sustained recovery from alcohol and drug use disorders.”
Up to six grants of approximately $350,000 per year, for up to four years, will be awarded by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. Public and private nonprofit organizations may apply.
Application deadline is Feb. 10, 2010. For more details, see the full grant announcement online.
