(This amendment provides $3.1 million GF each year to expand the number of bed-days available for individuals that require medically-supervised withdrawal or detoxification. Funding will assist 2,048 individuals who require this service. Additional resources will reduce the demand for uncompensated emergency room care, reduce the number of substance exposed newborns and reduce the number of individuals with substance use disorders who are homeless because of their addiction.)
