IT IS TIME! WE ARE CALLING ON MR. TRUMP FOR CHANGE AND DOING!
2017 Impact Report
The President’s Commission on Combatting Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis released a report with numerous recommendations on how the federal government could respond to this public health emergency. One of the many recommendations is to dramatically increase funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to engage in a vast expansion of research surrounding addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery.
Heres The Good News – recent reporting has indicated that congressional leaders from both parties are open to this increase in funding. At a recent Senate committee hearing, Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Maggie Hassan (D-NH) asked the current NIH Director how increases in funding could be beneficial to combat the opioid epidemic.
Let’s show senators and representatives from both parties they have grassroots backing for a substantial increase in funding for addiction-related research. We can do that by submitting thousands of signatures.
So, please, take a moment and add your name and location today. We’ll let your member of Congress know you support them for taking action on this issue!
Thanks for all you do. An increase in research dollars would be a major step forward as we continue #FacingAddiction as a nation.
