Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee advanced the Substance Abuse Prevention Act of 2018 (S. 2789), a comprehensive prevention bill that would reauthorize the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and key substance use prevention programs that would strengthen our nation’s efforts to prevent addiction and ultimately save lives. Included is a provision that would provide additional resources to support individuals and families in crisis. The Committee overwhelmingly approved this bill, along with four other bills to address our nation's drug crisis, and sent them to the Senate Floor.
In addition, on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, Representatives Doug Collins (R-GA) and Ted Deutch (D-FL) introduced the Substance Abuse Prevention Act in the House. This is the same bill that was originally introduced in the Senate by Senators John Cornyn and Dianne Feinstein.
Please take a moment to thank Senators Cornyn and Feinstein, as well as Representatives Collins and Deutch for their leadership on this vital piece of legislation.
