16 health centers in Connecticut are receiving grant money to fund treatment for mental health and opioid abuse.  The Connecticut Institute for Communities in Danbury was awarded $175,700.  The grant is part of a $200 million package awarded to more than 1,000 health centers and rural health organizations across the country by the Department of Health and Human Services.  Connecticut's congressional delegation says the funding is welcome, but only a small step in stopping the opioid scourge.  They say the health centers have been on the front lines of fighting the opioid epidemic in hard-hit Connecticut communities.
