From the Document: "Beginning in the late 1990s, the United States experienced a significant increase in opioid-related drug overdose deaths, which rose from 8,050 in 1999 to 49,860 in 2019. To address the rising rates of opioid use and overdose deaths, Congress created new opioid-specific block grant programs that provide funding to increase access to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid-use disorder."
