Groups get cash to stop over­doses

The Daily Courier - - OKANAGAN -

Pen­tic­ton’s Path­ways Re­source So­ci­ety and the Lake Coun­try Health Plan­ning So­ci­ety are among 27 groups in B.C. re­ceiv­ing fund­ing to launch pro­grams ad­dress­ing the over­dose cri­sis in their com­mu­ni­ties.

“The projects will help ad­dress lo­cal needs spe­cific to each com­mu­nity,” the Min­istry of Men­tal Health and Ad­dic­tions said in a news re­lease Fri­day.

“This fund­ing is part of a twostream grant process ad­min­is­tered through the Cana­dian Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion and Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Ini­tia­tive that aims to pro­vide tar­geted re­sources for in­no­va­tive over­dose-preven­tion mea­sures.”
