|Thanks to your support, the UNITE to Face Addiction rally in Washington, D.C. on October 4th was a huge success! By signing our petition to pass the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), your voice was heard on Capitol Hill.|
More than 700 people walked the halls of Congress last Monday, October 5th, advocating for CARA and joining us to deliver your petition signatures to members of Congress. It was the largest advocacy day EVER for our field!
But our job is not done. We still need your support to help us reach our goal of 10,000 signatures! Our next step in advancing this piece of legislation will be sending your signatures to the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee to schedule a hearing on this bill.
We need your help!! Please send the petition link to 5 of your friends to sign.
Too many families and their loved ones face limited to no insurance coverage for treatment, minimal support from employers, and long waitlists for the few treatment facilities that exist. The time is now to properly treat and define addiction as a public health crisis by passing CARA.
