Contact your lawmakers today and urge them to cosponsor the Comprehensive Addiction Resources Emergency (CARE) Act (S.1365, H.R.2569). Tackling our nation’s addiction crisis starts with a commitment to treatment and recovery services.
The bill recognizes the scope of the crisis and the resources necessary to truly affect change. The bill provides state and local governments with $100 billion in federal funding over ten years to expand access to evidence-based treatment and recovery support services. The bill also recognizes the importance of workforce development by authorizing $500 million in workforce development funding for professionals treating substance use disorders.
NAADAC is proud to champion this legislation and was thrilled to support its introduction. We ask now that you help us advocate for the resources needed to build an SUD workforce that meets the demands of the crisis.
