Tennessee families will soon receive state-funded assistance to battle addiction and keep children out of foster care.  

On Monday, the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse announced a 5-year, $3 million program designed to help families and children affected by opioids and other substance abuse by addressing addiction, improving permanency and enhancing the safety of children in affected households.
