Bemidji area receives opioid response grants

The Bemidji area received three grants from the Minnesota Department of Human Services in state opioid response grants.

According to a release, the grants are funded through September 2020, and include two grants to the Northwest Indian Community Development Center; a $400,000 grant so they may offer chronic pain management, access to prenatal care and family support, and increase access to healing-centered environments for those returning home from incarceration or court-ordered inpatient treatment.

The NWICDC also received a $500,000 grant to offer services for justice-involved and pregnant and parenting women in Beltrami County.

Sanford Health of Northern Minnesota received over $183,000 to establish recovery services for pregnant women.
