Tell Congress: Fund opioid treatment and recovery programs NOW.
Prescription opioid abuse is America's worst drug epidemic. Our loved ones, our families, our communities – none of them are immune.Sign Petition
But Congress has refused to adequately fund opioid treatment and recovery programs – even as three families lose a loved one to an opioid overdose, every single hour of every single day.
Will you tell Congress we can’t wait another second? Ask them to fund opioid treatment and recovery programs NOW.
Congress knows there’s a problem. In fact, they’ve already passed a bill that authorizes several new treatment and prevention programs.
But when it comes to funding those programs, they keep kicking the can down the road -- even though only 1 in 5 people who currently need treatment for opioid use disorders is actually getting it.
Worse: We’re seriously running out of time for action. We just can’t be sure what the new administration’s opioid policy might look like. This might be the very last chance Congress has to fund these lifesaving programs.
Please, tell Congress: Fund opioid treatment and recovery programs NOW. There’s no time to waste.
