HHS on Thursday said it will give four states more than $350 million to reduce opioid deaths by 40% over three years.

Kentucky, Massachusetts, New York and Ohio will participate in a study that could serve as a blueprint for other states on how to curb the opioid epidemic, HHS officials said. The study aims to coordinate efforts to prevent and treat opioid addiction in schools, the criminal justice system and other parts of the community.
