The city of Bartlesville will get a $1 million settlement payment from three opioid distributors for their role in Oklahoma's opioid crisis.

Bartlesville city councilors voted to participate in the "Oklahoma Opioid Distributor Settlement," giving the city about $1-million of the $22-million to be shared among Oklahoma cities and counties.

Bartlesville leaders said the city will use the funds for opioid addiction treatment, prevention, education, and support programs.

Oklahoma is set to receive its first payment from this settlement in December.
