ADA, Okla. (KTEN) — The opioid crisis is on-going in Oklahoma. Even Lone Grove police officers have been dispatched to calls of overdoses related to the drug. To help in the fight against it, millions of taxpayer dollars have been sent to numerous cities, counties and school districts.

"We've had four overdoses. One for sure was fentanyl,” Lone Grove Police Chief James Hicks said. “We've seen [victims] range from 15-years old up to 68-years old."

Pontotoc county, the city of Lone Grove, and Dickson, Marietta and Tishomingo public schools will all receive a portion of 11 million dollars from the Oklahoma Attorney General's office.

The money has been awarded by the Opioid Abatement board to 71 cities, counties, school districts and public trusts to help in the fight against the deadly drugs.

Pontotoc county will receive 150,000 dollars of that money.

"It's a full court press of aggressive prosecution of fentanyl dealers, outreach to our schools and a fully funded drug task force program that is addressing those issues with all our local law enforcement agencies," district 22 district attorney Erik Johnson said.

The city of Lone Grove was the only municipality in south central Oklahoma to receive some grant money: 120,000 dollars. City staff plan to use some of the money to educate young children and teenagers.

"All school districts in Carter County; educating children from K through 12th grade regarding the opioid epidemic and the effects that it has not just to their lives but those that are around them," said Sherri Snyder, Lone Grove’s grant project manager.
