New Hampshire will receive a big influx of federal dollars to treat addiction and mental illness.
The state will get up to $30 million a year for five years total. And for example, this year it would mean about an added 25 percent on top of what the state has budgeted for mental health and addiction.
That's a big gain for the state says Steve Norton, the executive director of the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Services. But the devil's in the details: like how the money will be spent and how any new services will be evaluated.
