Santora Encouraged by $5 Million Federal Grant to Fight the Opioid Epidemic
7/26/2018
HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania received a nearly $5 million federal grant to fight the opioid epidemic by providing a variety of support services from career counseling to workforce initiatives. Upon hearing the news, Rep. James R. Santora (R-Delaware) released this statement:

“In addition to controlling property taxes and fully funding our schools, my priority has always been fighting the opioid epidemic taking our loved ones’ lives. These drugs are so dangerous that someone can innocently become addicted in just five days when he or she was simply seeking relief from pain after surgery.

“This grant has the power to put families back together by giving Pennsylvanians the opportunity to make themselves more employable and then get jobs that will help to rebuild their lives.

“Of course, they must first pursue recovery, which the grant also addresses by allocating money to increase the number of certified recovery specialists – people who understand their struggle, either as previous addicts or who have lost a loved one to the epidemic.

“The funding complements legislation I drafted to encourage people who have overdosed to meet with a certified recovery specialist before being released from the hospital. House Bill 2147 would give people another chance at life, so I’m grateful for the funding that will make these resources more available.”
