Connecticut receives $5.5 million federal grant to combat opioid epidemic

Connecticus Grant to Combat Opioid Epidemic - Freedom From Addiction

Connecticut is getting a $5.5 million federal grant that will go towards combating the opioid epidemic. The grant money will be managed by the Connecticut State's Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. The medical director at the Rushfold Treatment Center says easy access to heroin and the potency of opioids such as fentanyl is driving up the number of overdoses. "It is like a moth to flame, and until someone can get to treatment and start to develop the fronts of their brain, the pre-frontal cortex that can help them put the brakes on, they're going to be vulnerable to using whatever substance comes along no matter how potent it is." Last year, more than 900 people in Connecticut died from opioid overdoses.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
