Dozens of Massachusetts cities and towns are sharing a $1.3 million grant meant to fight drug abuse and overdoses, state health officials announced Friday. The grants from the Massachusetts Opioid Abuse Prevention Collaborative Program are funded through a federal Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant. They will be used to implement policy, practice, systems, and environmental changes at the local level in an effort to prevent opioid abuse and reduce the number of hospitalizations and deaths associated with overdoses. The announcement was made at the Impact Quincy Opioid Conference, which fights drug abuse in Quincy, Braintree, Randolph, Stoughton, and Weymouth.
