Tell Congress: It’s time to treat addiction like any other disease. Pass key legislation now!

With each day that passes without new federal addiction legislation, 197 more Americans die from drug overdoses.

It’s time for Congress to act on legislation that will address the opioid crisis in a meaningful way.

While the Senate’s new opioid bill will advance a number of important policy improvements, including incentivizing health IT adoption for behavioral health providers, expanding access to addiction treatment for Medicare and Medicaid patients, and putting an end to the flood of fentanyl coming into the U.S. through international mail, more must be done to ensure maximum impact on the opioid crisis.

Take action now, and make sure your voice is heard before Representatives and Senators vote on a final bill!

Hi, my name is [NAME]. I live at [ADDRESS]. I’m calling to urge my representative to be an advocate for addiction issues, and support opioid legislation that’s moving through Congress. Specifically, I want to stress the importance of a few bills:

1. H.R. 3331 / S. 1732, the Improving Access to Behavioral Health Information Technology Act, which would make it easier for behavioral health providers to share health records and improve care

2. H.R. 5272, the RESULTS Act, which would ensure federal funding for addiction treatment only goes to evidence-based programs

3. S. 2711, the Enhancing Access to Addiction Treatment Act, which would enable more medical schools to provide comprehensive training on addiction and ensure more providers graduate with the requirements needed to prescribe buprenorphine to save lives

The addiction epidemic is our country’s most urgent public health crisis. I urge my [Representative/Senator] to be a leader and an advocate in this space. Thank you for your time.
