The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Friday awarded $13.3 million to expand treatment, early intervention and recovery support for adolescents and young adults with substance use and/or mental health disorders and their families, as well as family-based services for pregnant and postpartum women.

“These two grant programs fund treatment services for people grappling with substance use and provide needed wraparound supports in areas that, if left unaddressed, can impede attempts at recovery,” said Miriam Delphin-Rittmon, assistant secretary for mental health and substance use at the Department of Health and Human Services.
