Michigan Gets $3.5M For Substance Abuse Prevention

LANSING (AP) – Michigan is getting $3.5 million to support substance abuse prevention efforts for young people.

The Michigan Department of Community Health said Wednesday its Bureau of Substance Abuse and Addiction Services has been awarded the three-year grant. The money is to help address underage drinking among those ages 12 to 20, and prescription drug misuse and abuse by those ages 12 to 25.

Michigan was among a number of states to apply for the funding.

The state says efforts in Lake, Clare, Baraga, Roscommon, Gladwin, Luce, Genesee, Saginaw, Muskegon and Wayne counties will get support, as well as work with the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians.
