CCD: Connecticut to get new funding to combat opioid epidemic
Connecticut will get new funding to help combat the opioid epidemic, according to the Connecticut Congressional Delegation.
More than $300,000 will be used to develop surveillance systems to address the rising rate of opioid-related overdoses.
The systems will specifically focus on heroin and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl.
The CDC is expected to announce additional funding later this summer.
