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

Drug overdoses now kill more Americans than car crashes, gun violence, and even breast cancer.

We’re in the midst of the worst addiction epidemic in U.S. history. If this were any other disease ravaging our country, the government would already be enacting powerful solutions. But the unjust stigma of addiction costs us far too many lives every day.

Enough is enough.

This year, both the House of Representatives and the Senate have introduced a number of bills aimed at curbing the opioid epidemic. Shatterproof strongly supports several of them.

You can help get these bills passed. Join us and call on your reps to support:

  • Access to more effective treatment, by ensuring federal funding only goes to evidence-based programs
  • Better training for providers, educating on how to spot and treat substance use disorders
  • Innovative ideas to improve care, like health IT incentives that will streamline treatment

If the right bills are included in Congress’ final opioid legislation, we can save thousands of lives and spare countless families so much pain. Make your voice heard now.

Thank you for your dedication to this cause!

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.
