Letter to Congressional Conference Committee on Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016

The Collaborative for Effective Prescription Opioid Policies (CEPOP) is writing today to urge your timely action on the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 (CARA).

CEPOP is grateful for the bipartisan support of CARA and the broad array of related bills passed in the U.S. House. This legislative package represents a major step in the right direction to confront opioid abuse and misuse in the United States through prevention, treatment (including expanded access to medication-assisted treatment), recovery, overdose reversal, criminal justice reform, and law enforcement strategies.
