ARC funding to go toward jobs for recovering drug users in West Virginia

The West Virgina Drug Intervention Institute plans to use $478,000 in grant funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission to provide job opportunities to recovering drug users.

The funding was announced during the ARC’s 2023 Annual Conference in Ashland, Kentucky Monday. WV DII President Dr. Susan Bissett said they’ll find jobs for people in the Huntington-Charleston region.

“The grant allows for us to hire 10 persons who are in recovery or in the judicial area to assist with law enforcement, distributing naloxone and doing naloxone education,” Bissett said.
