South Dakota receives grant for opioid treatment and prevention

The Department of Social Services (DSS), Division of Behavioral Health will receive just over $4 million for two years totaling over $8 million in federal funding to help combat opioid use in South Dakota through the State Opioid Response grant.

DSS partnered with the Department of Health and the Opioid Abuse Advisory Committee to develop a strategic plan to strengthen South Dakota’s capacity to prevent misuse and abuse of opioids and guide grant efforts. The primary areas of the plan are prevention and early identification along with treatment and recovery.

South Dakota’s State Opioid Response grant will expand upon infrastructure and capacity built through the previous grant to support increased access to medication-assisted treatment, life-saving naloxone distribution, telehealth access to care and workforce development and training.

An estimated 28,500 individuals are projected to be served by the project through training, the provision of treatment and/or peer recovery support services and/or through connection/referral to community-based resources and providers.

For more information about behavioral health services, please contact DSS Division of Behavioral Health at 605-773-3123 or online at dss.sd.gov/behavioralhealth
