More than $1.3 million in state grants will support medication-assisted treatment programs for inmates living with opioid use disorder at 16 county jails, according to a recent Department of Health Services statement.
Grant recipients are working with jails in Bayfield, Brown, Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Grant, Kenosha, Iowa, Manitowoc, Racine, Rock, Shawano, Sheboygan, Walworth, Waushara and Vilas counties.
The money, provided under a law enacted earlier this year, is available through June 30. Up to $750,000 is available in future state fiscal years.
